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.

Umlauf Sculpture Garden

The Umlauf reopens its famed Garden to the general public. 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.

Tue.-Fri., 10am-4pm; Sat.-Sun., 11am-4pm.
