"Mentoring a Muse" Opening and Exhibition

The Umlauf Sculpture Garden & Museum presents "Mentoring a Muse," the first-ever exhibition of numerous, and many never before seen, works from University of Texas at Austin graduate and art student Farrah Fawcett and her mentor, professor and sculptor Charles Umlauf.

Before Fawcett became an international icon following her role on the hit television show "Charlie's Angels," she studied as an undergraduate at UT-Austin with Umlauf from 1965-68. After Fawcett's death in 2009, she bequeathed her personal art collection to the Blanton Museum of Art at UT-Austin; the Blanton will loan the UMLAUF more than 30 objects to complement the UMLAUF's works and those from private collections.

"Mentoring a Muse" opens Thursday, Feb. 16, 6-8 p.m., free and open to the UT community, and will run through August 20, during regular hours, Tuesday-Friday 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday 12-4 p.m. Additional programming with special hours will occur during the show, so please check www.umlaufsculpure.org.
