"One sign of an Irish resurgence in New York is a new Irish Arts Center… Embracing multiple disciplines, it bodes well for the future of Ireland’s place in New York’s cultural life"

On October 11, 2018, we broke ground on Phase One of the new Center. Fully funded at $60.1MM, Phase One included research and development, strategic and operational planning, fundraising, development, design, and construction of the 11th Avenue building.

In December 2021, we will open the New Irish Arts Center to the public. Not just a new building, but a new way of thinking about how we engage with artists and audiences, with Ireland, New York, and the world, for the 21st century.

In our Phase Two, we will renovate and restore our adjoining, existing Center on 51st Street, providing a second venue—our historic theatre—to expand opportunities for artists , and set up -- in conjunction with our 50th anniversary in 2022 -- our Endowment to provide crucial support for future programming and operations.
