Beginning in 2012, Irving Art Association will launch its first exhibit at the new West Irving Library which opened in April 2011. More than $8 million was invested in this 25,000-square-foot facility that sits on a 6.5-acre site on the corner of Rochelle and Esters roads. Completion of the environmentally friendly, technology rich facility marks another milestone in the city’s master plan for four stand-alone libraries. The award-winning building is a net zero energy facility and features cutting-edge educational technology, including a computer lab, Microsoft Surface Tables and SMART Boards.
Normal library hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays; noon to 9 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays; and 1 to 5 p.m. Sundays. Address: 4444 W. Rochelle Road Irving, TX 75062 Telephone: (972) 721-2691
Exhibit facilities include foyer and inside walls and extensive display cases suitable for miniature art and sculptures.
The inaugural exhibit is scheduled for January 7 through March 24, 2012. Only IAA members in good standing may enter. To join or renew, see the Membership page.
