Due to unprecedented demand from the viewing public, the Metropolitan Museum of Art has decided to extend opening hours on August 6th and 7th to midnight in order to accommodate the expected last-minute crush of visitors intent on seeing the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibit before it closes on the 7th. "Indeed, these midnight hours will mark a fitting conclusion to this powerful exploration of McQueen’s work," Thomas P. Campbell, CEO and director of the museum, told WWD.
