The Baltimore Museum of Art Sculpture Gardens are set on nearly three acres, and feature two terraced sculpture gardens that are home to 33 masterworks of modern and contemporary sculpture.
Sculptures range from Auguste Rodin’s striding bronze Balzac (1892) to Ellsworth Kelly’s stainless steel arc Untitled (1986)—providing a 100-year survey of sculpture from the figural to the abstract.
The Wurtzburger Sculpture Garden includes a formal entrance gate, terraces, a two-level reflecting pool, plantings and 19 major sculptures. On view are masterworks by artists such as Alexander Calder, Henry Moore and Isamu Noguchi.
In the Ryda and Robert H. Levi Sculpture Garden, which opened in 1988, you’ll find sloping garden paths and lush foliage surrounding a collection of 14 artworks from the latter half of the 20th century by artists such as Anthony Caro, Joan Miró, Louise Nevelson, and Tony Smith.
You can listen to an audio tour on your phone as you stroll through the gardens. You can also dine at Gertrude’s outdoor dining tables.
The Baltimore Museum of Art’s Sculpture Gardens are open to the public 10 a.m.–8 p.m., Tuesday through Sunday. No reservations are required.
