Arts & Culture
Spend some time in Bastrop’s burgeoning art scene and you’ll see why it’s becoming a destination for art lovers. Our local art scene thrives; anchored by, Deep in the Heart Art Foundry, 1889 Bastrop Opera House, the Jerry Fay Wilhelm Center for the Performing Arts and Bastrop Art in Public Places (BAIPP). Easy going, creative and outdoorsy, Bastrop is known as Texas’ Most Historic Small Town. Plan at least half a day to enjoy historic Main Street, old town and more than 130 distinguished historic homes and buildings. From our live music scene to local theaters our arts & culture scene is anything but ordinary. Shulman’s Theaters Lost Pines 8 offers first-run movies, bowling, a sports bar and more. And two of our numerous city parks – Fisherman’s Park and Ferry Park – are connected by the Colorado Riverwalk, making for a nice family-friendly way to spend the afternoon.
