Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty Exhibition Extended Through August 7 at Metropolitan Museum

Great news for all Alexander McQueen fans: The Metropolitan Museum of Art, NYC, just announced that the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibition has been extended by one week. The new closing date is August 7, 2011. The exhibition organized by The Costume Institute at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, which opened to the public on May 4, has already drawn more than 180,000 visitors. Because of the high demand, the Museum will also introduce Met Mondays with McQueen - a program offering new, additional hours that the exhibition galleries will open - beginning on June 6. Visitors may purchase special tickets for special viewings on upcoming Mondays when the Museum is closed to the public. Monday access will be available from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and the special viewing rate will be $50 per person with entries on the half hour, and will include a free Audio Guide to the exhibition. Tickets will be available in early June on-site at the Met as well as on the Museum's website at metmuseum.org/alexandermcqueen. If you're a Museum Member you're provided express entry to the exhibition on Tuesdays through Sundays, through the run of the exhibition.
