TRUE TO FORM
True to Form is a month-long teaching artistry series that explores the work of Charles Umlauf, his experimental and interdisciplinary forms, and his own role as a teaching artist at UT for 40 years. In this series, we invite four practicing artists into the Garden to reinterpret an Umlauf work through their own artistic vision and practice, and then reflect on that in an artistic skill building session with patrons. Four artists will unite under the same form or genre each month, but each week the styles and techniques will change from artist to artist, along the way reflecting on the experimentation seen in UMLAUF's own work in his nearly 60 years as an artist and a professor at UT.
YOGA IN THE GARDEN
The UMLAUF occupies a serene green space in the heart of Zilker Park in Austin. To complement the therapeutic qualities of the UMLAUF Garden, we partner with yoga instructors around Austin to offer a wide range of health and wellness classes. Check out our series and upcoming events!
UMLAUF After Dark
UMLAUF After Dark is our every-other-month event designed to connect musicians and artists with the public for an all-around good time!
UAD: Studio Sessions
In lieu of our on-site UMLAUF After Dark, we are implementing UAD: Studio Sessions, a month-long digital residency for Austin area musicians to connect with the UMLAUF Sculpture Garden, house, and studio as a site for creative inspiration.
Insights Artist Talks
Insights is an ongoing program that provides opportunities for visitors to learn more about rotating exhibitions in the UMLAUF Gallery.
Whether in the form of a panel discussion, symposium, or film series, you'll always have a chance to deeply engage with the concepts and context of UMLAUF exhibitions.
Live at the UMLAUF
Live at the UMLAUF is a series focused on relieving the arts venue crisis in Austin while creating new connections, activating the UMLAUF Garden in new and different ways, and providing high-quality entertainment. Through this program the UMLAUF will host performing arts and music groups from around Austin for performances in the Garden.
