Through the UMLAUF's Garden Giving auction in March 2020, the Museum launched Borrow-A-Bronze, a 6 month art rental program, and successfully auctioned off the rental of five available sculptures. Now Borrow-A-Bronze has expanded to incorporate several of Umlauf's beautiful bronzes and precious marble sculptures. A sculpture rental grants you the time and space to personally connect with Umlauf's deft craftsmanship and skill in your own home or business.   

 

Once you select your favorite sculpture, the rental term is 6 months for a $1000.00 flat fee. The UMLAUF handles delivery, installation, and pick up, and can provide a wooden pedestal if needed. We provide a rental agreement and require that you insure the object through your business, homeowner's, or inland marine insurance policy and provide evidence to the Museum. Your rental simultaneously provides you with a one-of-a-kind sculpture and supports the operations of the Museum. We are so excited to be able to share our collection of Charles Umlauf's sculptures.
