Irving Arts Center Goes Global with 25th Annual Holiday Exhibition and Open House

Annual Open house and Performance Dec. 8th celebrates Holidays around the World

Now, remember when we told you we were going global? At the conclusion of the open house, Grammy award winner Dan Zanes will give a free (and sensory-friendly*) performance which promises to bee a globe-trotting journey that even Santa would find most impressive!  Songs from Tunisia, Korea, Puerto Rico, Wales and Mexico will be performed along with some traditional Hanukah and Christmas favorites during a free, all-ages holiday sing along.  Admission is free on a first come, first-served basis at the Holiday Open House event on December 8, with the doors opening at 6:45 p.m.  Zanes will perform at 7:30 with a brief ceremony to reveal the winners of the celebrity tree judging at 7:15!
