CURTAIN CALL: In an unprecedented move prompted by the success of “Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty,” the Metropolitan Museum of Art is extending the hours of the exhibition for the final weekend. On Aug. 6 and 7, the Costume Institute exhibition will stay open until midnight to accommodate for a final rush of visitors.

 

“We have created these late hours to satisfy the unprecedented interest in this landmark retrospective,” said Thomas P. Campbell, the museum’s director and chief executive officer. “Visitors from across the globe have come to see this remarkable exhibition, and we want to keep it open for as many people as possible. Indeed, these midnight hours will mark a fitting conclusion to this powerful exploration of McQueen’s work.”

 

Nearly 550,000 people have seen the McQueen exhibition since it opened in May.
