Lots going on over at the Umlauf Sculpture Garden and Museum these days. Right around the corner is the glorious Umlauf Garden Party on April 27.
Before that, the Tailwaggers neo-gala will be held at the museum to benefit Austin Pets Alive.
Now through Aug. 20, the main gallery is populated with “Mentoring a Muse: Charles Umlauf and Farrah Fawcett,” a closer look at the bond between the eponymous sculptor and a prized and loyal student, who went on to Hollywood fame.
Some of the objects come from the Blanton Museum of Art as part of the Bequest of Farrah Fawcett.
Yet another event on tap: Tuesday, April 4 on the Umlauf Terrace, four panelists will share their memories of Fawcett for a museum event called “Friends of Farrah.”
They include Sylvia Dorsey, Fawcett friend since UT days. She lives in Austin.
Also expected: Gray Hawn, also a friend of Farrah since the late star’s Austin days.
As well as Karen Spelling, childhood friend of Farrah from Corpus Christi and UT/Austin.And finally, Greg Walls, Fawcett’s nephew and caretaker of Farrah’s personal archives, who lives in Houston.
