Art Exhibitions

At Irvine, we encourage creative expression which helps people connect with the natural world. We infuse creative arts into many of our programs and special events, including rotating art exhibitions in the main corridor and Fern Rooms.

We invite local artists to exhibit artwork with us. Proposals are considered on a rolling basis. Irvine retains a 20% commission on any artwork sold, which directly supports our art and environmental education programs.
