The UMLAUF Sculpture Garden & Museum is a nonprofit organization that exhibits the work of Charles Umlauf, his influences, and other contemporary sculptors in a natural setting. The institution provides educational experiences that encourage the appreciation of sculpture for all ages. In addition, the UMLAUF is a rental venue for weddings, corporate functions, fundraising events, and more. The UMLAUF was founded in 1991. Since that time, we have organically grown to become a destination in our community, located within the green heart of Austin near Zilker Park and Lady Bird Lake. We provide art-in-education programs to at-risk youth; touch-tours for visually impaired and special needs; and free tours for every public- school child. The UMLAUF is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
