Built in 1930 on what were then the rural shores of White Rock Lake, the “Old Bath House” was one of the first uses of Art Deco architecture in the southwest. The building provided lockers, changing rooms, rentable swim suits and concessions for the thousands of people that drove from all over North Texas to swim in the lake. Today, instead of lockers and showers, the Bath House Cultural Center houses a 116-seat theater, two gallery spaces, the White Rock Lake Museum, and a number of multipurpose spaces. Diversity flourishes as visual and performing artists from an array of backgrounds find a welcoming venue for their work. The center’s energetic atmosphere and programming creates a hotbed for the nurturing of new work, and an exciting place where artists and audiences meet to explore and enjoy the life force that is the arts. Consistently rated as one of the Top Attractions in the DFW Metroplex, the Bath House’s energetic atmosphere and diverse programming create a hotbed for the nurturing of new work and an exciting place where artists and audiences meet.
