Irving Arts Center
The Irving Arts Center’s complex houses four galleries, two theaters, an outdoor sculpture garden and a variety of meeting space on a 10 acre-site. As a member of the Smithsonian Affiliations program, the Arts Center often presents traveling exhibitions the Smithsonian Institution as well as a mix of contemporary and traditional exhibitions from established and emerging artists.
The two fully-equipped theaters feature more than 200 performances annually. Twelve Founding Organizations representing symphonies, cultural groups, choruses, theater and ballet call the Irving Arts Center home.
Don’t miss the Irving Centennial Mural while at this location. It depicts historic images from Irving’s history and was created by Francisco Mendoza and 40 Irving youths in 2003-2004 as part of a community development block grant. It is made of Venetian glass tile and is 10’ x 66’. This project was funded in part by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
