NOVEMBER 18, 2020 - MARCH 7, 2021

The UMLAUF and AIA Austin are proud to collaborate once again on the annual exhibition Design Shine. Created to showcase emerging talent in the fields of architecture and design, the 2020 Design Shine jury chose two extraordinary proposals from two local teams, each of which invokes the history and topography of the UMLAUF site.  Situated amidst Charles Umlauf's sculptures, the 2020 Design Shine installations will reinvigorate the visitor's experience with captivating, family-friendly sculptural art works.

Courtney Egan: Superflora

SEPTEMBER 16, 2021 - JANUARY 10, 2022

Courtney Egan is best known for painstakingly translating photographs she takes of botanical forms into video-based sculptural installations that call into question the distinction between the natural and technological worlds. The central work in the UMLAUF exhibition will be Metaflora, a large interactive video projection. As viewers move along the walls, the floral imagery blossoms and fades, responding to their presence. Superflora will also feature Egan’s Sleepwalkers, a wondrous installation in which a bed of flowers is projected into a real clawfoot bathtub that reminds us of the role of nature as an essential human stimulus for relaxation; and a single video of undulating flowers on the exhibition’s entrance wall.

Luis Jiménez: Retrospective

JANUARY - JUNE 2022

The UMLAUF Sculpture Garden + Museum will organize the first-ever Luis Jiménez retrospective, to open in January 2022. Luis Jiménez (1940-2006) was one of the most visionary, celebrated, and controversial American artists of the 20th century. Famous for his monumental polychrome fiberglass sculptures, he blended Chicano working class sensibilities with acute sociopolitical awareness.
