What a great little gem for the city of Irving. The Irving Arts Center gets rotating exhibitions and also hosts live performances. In 2013 I was a volunteer docent for the Genghis Khan exhibit - and I can say from experience that the volunteer training was EXTENSIVE! So, the docents are well informed. The Genghis Khan exhibit featured the largest... More

Great little art center. Certainly not equal in volume with larger museums, but great for a quick visit. I've been a couple of times to see different exhibits. I really enjoyed it both times. Check out the art in the garden too.

A lovely facility for the Arts. Several art exhibits were up and an annual juried show was opening. There is also a theater.

This is a small museum and it is free but it offers exhibits you don't see other places. I recommend this museum unreservedly - during the week no crowds, ample parking, easy to find, peaceful atmosphere

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.
