The Baltimore Museum of Art will reopen its sculpture gardens to the public on Wednesday, allowing visitors to roam the outdoor space filled with works by Auguste Rodin, Joan Miró, José Ruiz de Rivera and others.

Starting June 24 at 10 a.m., guests will be allowed to tour the Janet and Alan Wurtzburger Sculpture Garden and Ryda and Robert H. Levi Sculpture Garden, featuring nearly three acres, landscaped plots and 33 pieces of art.

The museum is capping capacity at 77 people and encouraging visitors to wear face masks, practice physical distancing and limit group sizes to five people or fewer.

The BMA’s main building and the restaurant Gertrude’s remain closed.

Opened in 1980, the Janet and Alan Wurtzburger Sculpture Garden contains 19 early modernist works, including pieces by Rodin, Henry Moore, Max Bill and Emile-Antoine Bourdelle, to name a few. The upper garden was designed by George E. Patton.

Eight years later, the BMA opened the adjoining Ryda and Robert H. Levi Sculpture Garden on two acres of land, with a design from Sasaki Associates. It includes 14 pieces from 20th century artists such as Miró, Ruiz de Rivera, Alexander Calder and Louise Nevelson.

Going forward, the gardens will be open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., weather permitting.
