A Day Trip to the Umlauf Sculpture Garden

This past weekend my son and I explored the Umlauf Sculpture Garden in Austin, TX.

In case you’re like me and have no idea of who Umalauf is, he was a Michigan born sculptor who moved to Austin in 1941. He taught at UT Austin for 40 years before retiring as a professor emeritus in 1981. His sculptures range “from haunting expressionism to detailed neoclassical realism to lyrical abstraction” (Sculpture Guide) and he used various materials such as wood, terra cotta, stone, bronze, and marble.

Below are some of the photos I took, and whenever I get batteries for my camera, I’ll post some more. If you ever have the chance to visit Austin, I highly recommend this beautiful garden
