The Adventure Begins…

The performing and fine arts community in Irving celebrated the opening of a new home in 1990 with the arrival of the Irving Arts Center. The ten-acre complex features two fully equipped theaters; four galleries; meeting, classroom, reception and rehearsal facilities; and a sculpture garden. The Arts Center is home to eleven Irving Resident Art Organizations.

Location, Location, Location!

No matter where your journey begins, the Irving Arts Center’s stages and galleries are conveniently nestled in the heart of Dallas and Ft. Worth.  Our central location is close to the DART Orange Line, between Highway 114 & 183 (MacArthur Blvd. exit.) The Center is 15 minutes from D/FW International Airport and Love Field.
