Artwork display by After School
Program students
Saturday, April 26th
Irving Arts Center Carpenter Hall at 7pm

Artwork created by the After School Program at the Irving Parks and Recreation Centers of  Cimarron Park Recreation Center, Georgia Farrow Recreation Center, Lee Park Recreation Center, Mustang Park Recreation Center, Northwest Park Recreation Center and Senter Recreation Center was submitted with the theme "What I Like About Irving, Texas" from which 60 pieces were selected to be shown during the April 26 program of Celebrating Irving:  The City and The Man honoring the 100th Anniversary of the Incorporation of the City of Irving at the Irving Arts Center.  The evening program on April 26 is open to the public and free admission.  A reception will held in the lobby after the event.

The young students will be in attendance on April 26 and recognized during the evening event.   The project was coordinated by Kathryn Knapp of the Mustang Park Recreation Center and LaNita Johnson of the Celebrating Irving:  The City and The Man committee.

Attached is a partial list of the answers to what they like about Irving, Texas.  Many selected the Irving Public Library as their favorite as well as the Parks and the Recreation Centers.

The sponsors of the month long activities include the Irving Heritage Society, the City of Irving, the Irving Independent School District, the Irving Black Arts Council and the Irving Public Library.    This program was made possible in part with a grant from Humanities Texas, the state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.  It was funded in part by the City of Irving through the Irving Arts Board.  For additional information, call 972-252-3838.
