Irving Art Galleries

(Irving, Texas - TX, USA)

The art scene in Irving is fairly sedate and visitors to the city are recommended to travel the short distance to nearby Dallas or Fort Worth to appreciate a wider selection of art galleries.

Exclusive to the city is the Irving Arts Center, which stands out as one of the best exhibition venues within these three cities and lies on the northern side of downtown. If you have time, take a trip to the Dallas Museum of Art and indulge yourself in some serious art appreciation, while in nearby Fort Worth, the Modern Art Museum stands out, together with its neighbor, the Kimbell Art Museum, which is located next to the Will Rogers Memorial.
