The Umlauf Sculpture Garden & Museum is offering free admission through Aug. 31, thanks to its fundraising efforts during the citywide Amplify Austin campaign.
Next to Zilker Park, the museum’s six-acre grounds and exhibit pavilion have dozens of sculptures made by Charles Umlauf, the late modernist artist and University of Texas art professor
Umlauf museum curators have re-created the artist’s studio in the museum gallery for the current exhibit, “Studio in the Museum: An Interactive Recreation of Charles Umlauf’s Studio”
A pair of built-in vignettes of original tools, workbench, drafting table, sculpture stands and artwork pulled directly from Umlauf’s actual studio anchor the display. Interactive areas offer visitors the chance to try out their sculpting skills and create a portrait of Charles Umlauf in clay.
Museum hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday-Friday, noon to 4 p.m. Saturday-Sunday
