Irving Art Association
Celebrating 50+ Years of Art in Irving, Texas

Established in 1956, the Irving Art Association (IAA) is one of the oldest cultural organizations in Irving and is conservator of the Jaycee Park Center for the Arts, a two-gallery building nestled in a lovely park setting with flowers, trees, shrubbery, and a duck pond. In November 2003 the hippo sculptures created by David Iles for the Irving Art Association were dedicated and donated to the City of Irving.

IAA is committed to supporting year round art appreciation and educational opportunities. The schedule includes 22 curated gallery exhibits, professional artist demonstrations at eight membership meetings from September through May, and workshops by professional artists. The major annual event of the year since 1985 has been sponsorship of the Texas and Neighbors Art Competition featuring artists from Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, and Texas and judged by a nationally known artist. The exhibit is held at the prestigious Irving Arts Center. An annual Wildlife Show and Pet Art Show provide competition for artists in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Members may also compete in an annual juried show as well as Artist of the Month competitions.
