Fodor's Expert Review Umlauf Sculpture Garden and Museum

West Austin and Zilker Park Garden/Arboretum

This pleasant space at the south end of Zilker Park houses 53 of Charles Umlauf's sculptures in the house where he lived and worked. Umlauf, who taught at the University of Texas Art Department from 1941 to 1981, created an incredibly diverse body of work that ranged in style from realistic to abstract, using such materials as granite, marble, bronze, wood, and terra-cotta. His subjects were equally wide-ranging, from religious figures to nudes, from whimsical animals to family groupings.
