SAVAGE SUCCESS: The Costume Institute’s “Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty” exhibition has proven to be such a hit that the Metropolitan Museum of Art is extending it by one week, and offering the public additional viewing times. It will now close on Aug. 7, and to better serve the interest, a “Met Mondays with McQueen” program will kick off on Monday June 6. For $50 a person, visitors will have special access to the galleries between 9:30 am to 2:30 pm while the rest of the museum is closed.

McQueen’s May 4 opening day was the biggest ever for the Costume Institute, and the entire museum’s second biggest after 2005’s “Vincent van Gogh: The Drawings.” Since then, over 150,000 visitors saw the exhibition.
