Art Trot

Saddle up for sculpture

6/4

A great man once said--while floating in a Titanic life preserver in his sybaritic swimming pool--"Don't dream it; be it." OK, so his version of "being it" involved an aquatic orgy and resulted in death by beam of pure antimatter. To satisfy a slightly safer dream--being involved in an art exhibit--multimedia artist Keith Clementson invites you to be part of his new installation White Rock at, of all places, White Rock Lake. The exhibit is divided into two parts, an outdoor installation and an indoor gallery at Bath House Cultural Center, which employ sculptures of model homes and floor plans coupled with oil paintings to draw comparisons between related pairs--heaven and earth, human bodies and houses, churches and homes. On opening day, visitors will have the chance to tour the outdoor portion of the exhibit on horseback, becoming a "kinetic" part of the artwork through the experience of "a false sensation of elevated status," according to the artist. The horseback experience is free (and available only on opening day), but a donation of $25 is appreciated. View White Rock via equine at 521 E. Lawther Drive from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. June 4. Reserve your horse at www.keithclementson.com. --Michelle Martinez

Alvaro Diaz-Rubio

Baby, She's a Star

6/7

I have no idea who Star Jones Reynolds is, but the name says it all. This person is somebody famous, well worth going to see at a charity luncheon. Just as Writer Kennedy is worth reading. Oh, wait, Google says Jones' first name is actually Starlet--more descriptive still. Perhaps I should change mine to Hack Kennedy. Jones appears at the Attorneys Serving the Community luncheon at noon Tuesday at the Wyndham Anatole Hotel, 2201 Stemmons Freeway. Tickets are $75 by calling 214-821-6380. --Rick Kennedy

Pajama Jam

6/3

We admit it. We would still like to own pajamas with Cookie Monster on them. They're cute, comfy and they wouldn't pinch. But we're 30 years old. Of our favorite ways to bond with friends, very few activities rank higher than the pajama party. And judging from recent sightings of cartoon jammies and fuzzy slippers for grown-ups, pajama party chic is making a comeback. So sport that Cookie Monster sleepwear and proclaim yourself hip. Kismet hosts a Pajama Party for grown-ups, G-rated pajamas and all. The bar is transformed into a gigantic bedroom, bed included, from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. June 3 at 3707 Greenville Ave. Admission is free for 21 and up. Call 214-823-8883 or visit www.izmirgroup.com. --Stephanie Durham

Tony! Tony!

6/5

The Tony Awards: a three-hour escape from reality where every day is in G minor, any 10-year-old boy who tried on his mother's lipstick is normal and Carol Channing raps with LL Cool J before commending a sexually explicit puppet musical for its artistry. This eclectic celebration of the best of Broadway comes but once a year and should be celebrated with friends, frivolity and tacos from On the Border, which is why Circle Theatre asks charitable area theaterphiles to join the company for Tonys & Tacos, a big-screen Tony-watching party on Sunday at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center, 1300 Gendy St. Individual tickets to the comfortably casual affair are $100, and 10-person tables are $1,500 to $2,500. The silent auction begins at 6:30 p.m.; the show starts at 7 p.m. Call 817-877-3040 or visit www.circletheatre.com. --Mary Monigold
