Umlauf Sculpture Garden and Museum Sculptor Charles Umlauf and his wife, Angeline, donated their house, studio and surrounding grounds to the city to be used as a sculpture garden. It now features more than 130 pieces of Charles Umlauf's internationally lauded artwork. It's an artistic coup for the city of Austin.
Gardens...
should be like lovely, well-shaped girls:
all curves,
secret corners, unexpected deviations,
seductive surprises and then still more curves.
H.E. Bates,
from A Love of Flowers

There are points of time, of distant memory, when the soul unites within the pattern of the universe. That union brings forth the understanding of life's harmony. So it should be within the garden ...
