Don’t take this opportunity for granite. The UMLAUF Sculpture Garden + Museum will unveil its Historic Preservation, Expansion and Unification Plan, a blueprint to upgrade the exhibition, at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 29.

The history? In 1985, American sculptor Charles Umlauf and his wife Angeline donated their home, art studio, seven acres, and 150+ sculptures to the City of Austin. This endowment paved the way for The UMLAUF to open in 1991, which currently boasts 100+ bronze and stone sculptures across 5.86 acres.

The HPEU Plan aims to:

  • Improve access to and use of the existing sculpture garden
  • Preserve and open to the public the historic personal residence of the Umlaufs, their private sculpture garden, and art studio
  • Increase gathering space
  • Display art currently in storage
  • Implement sustainable practices and stormwater management strategies

Register for the free event at 605 Azie Morton Rd. — refreshments will be provided.
