Umlauf Sculpture Garden & Museum
605 Robert E. Lee
Hours: Tue.-Fri., 10am-4pm; Sat.-Sun., noon-4pm
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. In addition to the works on permanent display, the museum shows works by other artists, such as Margo Sawyer, the late Jesús Moroles, and the winner of the annual Umlauf Prize for student artists.
Check out this first-ever exhibition of works from former UT art student Farrah Fawcett and her mentor, professor and sculptor Charles Umlauf. Thu., Feb. 16 - Sun., Aug. 20Through Aug. 20.
Stretch yourself creatively tonight, citizen, with a free yoga class and beverages among the wonders of the sculpture garden. Tue., May 2Tue., May 2, 6-8pm. Free.
