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 the public through its entrance on West 54th Street between Sixth and Seventh Avenues from 9 to 10:15am.

Coffee and other beverages (although why you'd want to imbibe anything but caffeine at that time of day is beyond us) will be available to buy. 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.
