The Umlauf reopens its famed Garden (but not the interior gallery) to the general public on Sat., June 6, 11am-4pm. There won’t be any performances going on yet, as occasionally delighted crowds in the Before Times
, but there will be all those expertly wrought sculptures, the bronze or stone cynosures from Charles Umlauf
and others anchoring sight among the bright gardenscapes and tree-towered paths: Perfect for a strolling, fresh-air respite from yet another screenful of pixels in your all-too-familiar abode.: Note: The usual safety measures will be in effect: A limit of 30 visitors in the garden at a time; a one-way marked path to follow; masks and social distancing strongly encouraged; etc. (You know the routine: You’re an old hand at this pandemic shit by now, right?) Also, know that the Umlauf’s private-event rentals will resume with limited capacity set by local and state guidelines – and its summer camp program will proceed with those restrictions in mind, too.: See the museum’s website
for details and to schedule an appointment.
