BALTIMORE—Three acres adjacent to the Baltimore Museum of Art are home to 34 modern and contemporary sculptures. The figurative and abstract works animate the sculpture garden‘s serene environment. The lush grounds showcase works by renowned artists commonly featured in outdoor museum collections, including Alexander Calder, August Rodin and “Sister Lu,” an enormous steel installation by Mark di Suvero, as well as lesser knowns whose creations are equally intriguing.
