Alexander McQeen MET Exhibition Breaks Records


The Metropolitan Museum of Art announced today that Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty is the eighth most visited exhibition in its 141-year history, putting the designer in the same category as exhibitions including Treasures of Tutankhamun (1978), Mona Lisa (1963), andPicasso in The Metropolitan Museum of Art(2010). In total 661,509 visitors viewed the exhibition during its run from May 4 to August 7, making it easily the most-viewed show since the Costume Institute became part of the Museum in 1946.
"We are enormously gratified that visitors turned out in record numbers to view this powerful exhibition of McQueen's work," said Thomas P. Campbell, director and ceo of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. "The show was an elegant tribute to the designer's artistry, and we are proud to have shared it with such a broad audience, eager to experience the breadth of his genius."
