Take a stroll through the BMA’s gardens where you’ll find 33 sculptures positioned across nearly three lush acres.
Along the path, linger for an up-close look at both towering and smaller-scale examples of modern and contemporary sculpture created within the last 100 years.
The Alan and Janet Wurtzburger Sculpture Garden and the Ryda and Robert H. Levi Sculpture Garden are free and open to the public year-round every Wednesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., weather permitting. No reservations are required.
Face masks are required when entering or exiting the gardens, when interacting with staff at the Welcome Tent or Snow Cone Sisters, and when in close proximity to other groups. Please read the museum’s visitor policies prior to your visit.
The gardens will close during storms and in cases of extreme heat or cold to protect visitors, staff, and the art. Please contact 443-573-1700 to plan ahead.
Alan and Janet Wurtzburger Sculpture Garden
Marked by a stone terrace and picturesque fountain, start your visit at the 17,000-foot Alan and Janet Wurtzburger Sculpture Garden, which houses 19 early modernist works by artists such as Alexander Calder, Jacques Lipchitz, Isamu Noguchi, and Auguste Rodin. The Wurtzburger Sculpture Garden, designed by George E. Patton, opened to the public in 1980.
Ryda and Robert H. Levi Sculpture Garden
Just below, you’ll find the neighboring two-acre Ryda and Robert H. Levi Sculpture Garden. This garden features 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. The Levi Sculpture Garden, designed by Sasaki Associates, opened to the public in 1988.
