The New York Times has reported the opening of the new $60 million flagship building for the Irish Arts Center in New York City’s Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood.
The new space will be able to host music, theatre, dance and other performances.
A visual arts exhibition curated by former Sirius Arts Centre director Miranda Driscoll has been arranged for the opening of the new centre in December.
The project was partially funded by both Irish and American government agencies.
The Irish Arts Center has been at the forefront of the Irish art world in the United States since 1972 and remains an important resource for the Irish diaspora in the US.
