Not all of the art is inside the Baltimore Museum of Art. In fact, some pretty incredible sculptures are part of the Alan and Janet Wurtzburger Sculpture Garden and the Ryda and Robert H. Levi Sculpture Garden, an oasis between the museum and Charles Street.
It’s open (and free!) whenever the museum is open. With lots of paths for strolling (or pushing a stroller), and green places that beckon small children, it’s a great place to spend an hour or an afternoon. And even though the large steel sculptures look like terrific jungle gyms, they’re off-limits even to the smallest among us. A boxing bunny rabbit, gigantic pair of eyes, strange modern sculptures and a few more representational pieces offer visitors a chance to use their imaginations and talk
about everything from color and shape to what the heck is that bunny doing standing on an anvil?! (You’ll just have to go and see for yourselves.)
Gertrude’s Restaurant at the BMA overlooks the gardens. The Jazz in the Sculpture Garden concert series brings together these wonderful elements with great music in July and August.
Looks like a lovely spot. I’m not really one for art museums, but seeing outdoor installations like this would keep my attention for much longer as I get to sit and not only look at the art, but the lovely surroundings too–and watch others enjoying the space too.
