Umlauf Museum offers free admission for the summer



Thanks to some donors and funders, the Umlauf Sculpture Garden & Museum is offering free admission through Aug. 31.

Combined donations from the McBee Family Foundation, individual donors giving through the Amplify Austin campaign, and the H-E-B Tournament of Champions will alleviate the need to charge admission, museum officials reported.

On view at the Umlauf through Aug. 18 is “James Surls: With Out, With In,” the first-ever solo exhibition in Austin that spotlights the sculpture the preeminent Texan sculptor. Featured are nearly 30 large and small objects in Surls’ signature fluid style, that evocatively combines wood, steel, and bronze.

Special events like Umlauf After Dark will still charge a modest $5. The next event is July 2, with music by Sasha K.A & Friends, lawn games and drinks from Austin Beerworks, Tito’s Handmade Vodka, and Wine For the People.
