The Museum of Modern Art has announced that it's offering free entry to its Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Sculpture Garden before the museum proper opens. Beginning September 9, the tree- and sculpture-studded patio will welcome families (and the rest of the general public) through its entrance on West 54th Street between Sixth and Seventh Avenues from 9 to 10:15am.
In case you're still waking up, coffee and other beverages will be available for purchase on-site. Currently on view in the garden is Barnett Newman’s Broken Obelisk (1967), Pablo Picasso’s Monument (1972), Katharina Fritsch's Figurengruppe/Group of Figures (2006–08), Picasso’s She-Goat (1950), Joan Miró’s Moonbird (1966) and Claes Oldenburg's Geometric Mouse, Scale A (1975), as well as works by Henri Matisse, Mark di Suvero and more.
