Resources for Artists and Art Organizations

The mission of the Irving Arts Board and the Irving Arts Center is to serve citizens and visitors through the support and development of artistic opportunities.

Irving is a vibrant place to live, work, and visit and the Arts Board is dedicated to providing artistic opportunities for all citizens to learn about, participate in, experience, and enjoy the arts in all its forms. There are a number of resources available for those interested in making art, organizations dedicated to providing cultural opportunities for residents and visitors and for those who wish to support the efforts of such groups behind the curtain.

Membership in Art Connection & participation in Summer KidsArts offer a chance to be included in gallery exhibitions in the beautiful galleries of the Arts Center.

In partnership with the Smithsonian Institution

As a Smithsonian Affiliate Institution, Irving Arts Center echoes the Smithsonian mission: “The increase and diffusion of knowledge.” Irving Arts Center aims to inspire artists, scientists, technologists and creative thinkers by providing opportunities for learning and engaging.
