Damian Priour’s “Pointed Sphere”

Leveraging the monies contributed through the annual Amplify Austin fund drive, the Umlauf Sculpture Garden & Museum is offering free admission all summer long.

And new to verdant grounds is “Pointed Sphere” (2005), a 30” diameter limestone and glass orb by the late Texas artist Damian Priour (1949-2011).

“Pointed Sphere” is  now permanently installed at the sculpture garden.

And to celebrate the arrival of “Pointed Sphere,” there’s a public reception from noon to 4 p.m. Sunday, June 21.

The Umlauf Sculpture Garden & Museum, 605 Robert E. Lee Road, is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesdays-Fridays, noon to 4 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays.
