Umlauf Sculpture Garden & Museum

605 Azie Morton, 512/445-5582
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.

Envisioning the Future at Umlauf

The art-laden grounds just down the road from Barton Springs are already beautiful and verdant. With that in mind, our interest in the museum’s Historic Preservation, Expansion, and Unification Plan is piqued. Come out and see the historic plans for improvements to the grounds and new structures. The community engagement portion of the plan may be done, but they can’t stop you from sharing opinions with a friend while enjoying complimentary hors d’oeuvres and drinks. Not enough art for you? Stick around for a panel discussion with the four artists showcased in the current “Floating Forests” exhibition. – James Renovitch Wed., May 29.
