From poetry readings and photography exhibits to classical and modern dance, you’ll find plenty to peak your interest in this historic, art deco-style bath house built in 1930. With three gallery spaces, 116-seat theater and several multipurpose spaces for various events, the Bath House Cultural Center hosts local and international artists across all media. This is also the home of the Festival of Independent Theatres, during which the city's best independent theaters come together to perform celebrated, established plays as well as new works by up-and-coming local playwrights.

The Bath House Cultural Center originally was constructed in 1930 as a recreational center for swimmers and sunbathers enjoying White Rock Lake. The building is one of the first examples of art deco architecture in the Southwest.
