Umlauf Sculpture Garden & Museum
605 Robert E. Lee
The legacy of world-renowned artist Charles Umlauf, whose cast pieces have become a part of the cultural fabric of this city. More than 130 pieces are scattered around the grounds of this facility just south of Town Lake and east of Barton Springs, and despite the closeness to a busy thoroughfare, the locale is tranquil, soothing, an easy place to commune with and appreciate Umlauf's dramatic, elongated figures. The perfect in-town getaway for the perpetually frazzled.
Does an art-filled gathering get more family-friendly than this? Hard to imagine, what with a splendid afternoon among the pumpkin carving, games, food trucks, crafts, yoga, and more on the Umlauf's gently wooded and sculpture-studded grounds. Sun., Oct. 23Sun., Oct. 23, noon-5pm. Free.
Carve a pumpkin, chow down at a variety of food trucks, and listen to some sweet tunes provided by DJ Gatsby. Admission is free, but donations are accepted. Sun., Oct. 23, noon-5pm. Free.
