Exhibits for Irving’s Big Read Colors of Mexico – call for art
Take up a literary art challenge with two IAA-sponsored Big Read exhibits! Art submitted should relate to the chosen book Into the Beautiful North or one of the NEA’s 47 alternatives, Hispanic literature or culture, or the general concept of reading.
Irving Public Library, eight-time winner of the National Endowment for the Arts Big Read award, returns with its eleventh annual community read series. The selected novel is Into the Beautiful North by award-winning author Luís Alberto Urrea. Free books, fun events and author visits around the city tie into National Hispanic Heritage Month. The Irving Art Association is proud to be a program partner with the Library.
