UMLAUF After Dark Debuts with Live Bronze Pour
“UMLAUF After Dark” kicks off Tuesday, Feb. 7, 6-8 p.m., and will happen every first Tuesday of the month, offering UMLAUF visitors a chance to experience the special evening environment of the sculpture garden and in featured gallery exhibitions, in addition to the monthly themed activities, food and entertainment.
This first UMLAUF After Dark offers visitors the once-a-year chance to view a Live Bronze Pour, part of the UMLAUF’s recurring Insights programming. This behind-the-scenes look is a demonstration of the lost-wax casting technique Charles Umlauf used for his bronze sculptures. Members of Austin’s Atelier 3-D studio will take visitors through the stages of creating a bronze sculpture, culminating in a live bronze pour at the UMLAUF. This event is free and open to the public, and from 6:00-6:45 p.m. guests will enjoy drinks and chili from Texas Chili Queens and examine stages of sculpture on tables, prior to the 7 p.m. live pour.
Atelier 3-D is an East Austin sculpture school and artist studio featuring classes in a variety of sculptural materials and techniques.
