Thirty years ago the Bath House, which once played host to swimmers and fun-seekers at White Rock Lake in the early part of the 20th century, reopened as a cultural center after being shuttered for years. Since 1981, the Bath House has been home to art exhibitions, plays and other cultural events, and now it celebrates its dual history as a recreation center and hub of community arts in From Sandy Beaches to Vibrant Arts: 30th Anniversary of the Bath House. The exhibition features artistic renderings of the building and its surroundings from over 40 artists from North Texas, plus Growing Up Twins, a short documentary that follows twins who grew up in the area and swam in White Rock Lake when it was a popular swimming hole. The exhibition is on display at the Bath House Cultural Center, 521 E. Lawther Drive, through October 1. The center is open from noon to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Admission is free. Call 214-670-8749 or visit dallasculture.org/bathhouseculturecenter.
Tuesdays-Saturdays, 12-6 p.m. Starts: Sept. 3. Continues through Oct. 1, 2011
