This is a small art museum, but it still has some variety. It's worth a trip because of the free admission, but it is otherwise just average. There is no charge for parking. We missed the Peruvian gold exhibit (which apparently cost money), but we were able to see several different exhibits that filled the various hallways of the center.... More

We went to see the Peruvian Gold exhibit. Irving and Washington DC are the only places in the United States to have this come to them. It's there until the end of December. My daughter and I enjoyed it a lot and also liked the attached gift shop.

Friends and I attended the "David Small World" exhibit sponsored by The National Center for Children's Illustrated Literature in this venue. It was fabulous. Not only is the Irving Arts Center a lovely, well-lit building, the small sculpture garden was delightful, and the exhibit we came out to see was well organized and lots of fun to meander through. We... More

The Symphony performed several selections that were obliquely related to Italy, but the real connection was the guest pianist from Italy, who performed Rhapsody in Blue. The acoustics are good but not great. The orchestra could be clearly heard and appreciated, but when the conductor used the microphone it was difficult to hear and understand him. Overall, it was a... More

This was our second visit to the Irvings Arts Center and we were impressed by the facility and the quality of the performance. The Center itself has relatively easy parking although not enough handicapped parking. There is great visibility from any seat and the accustics are very good. Overall it was a pleasent afternoon in an excellent venue.

I had balcony seating to enjoy a concert watching my wife perform. The IAC is an excellent venue to enjoy the symphony.

We much enjoyed the Irving Arts Center where we saw a musical put on by the Lyric Stage. The Crawford theater is a good size. The musical was enjoyable. We will return in the future for other productions here. We come to Dallas for the Dallas Opera, but the Irving Arts Center offers a pleasant way to spend another evening.

The show that we saw there was a Elvis show with Kraig Parker & Ben Portsmouth. It was a Great show. The Arts Center was out of sight place.
