Metropolitan Museum Offers Added Viewing Day for Highly Popular Special Exhibitions, Selected Galleries

NEW YORK, NY.- On Independence Day (Monday, July 4)—the next in the series of Met Holiday Mondays—the public will have an additional opportunity to view the Museum’s galleries, including popular exhibitions Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty; Richard Serra Drawing: A Retrospective; and Poetry in Clay: Korean Buncheong Ceramics from Leeum, Samsung Museum of Art. Met Holiday Mondays are extra public viewing days that take place on the Mondays of major holiday weeks and weekends, when historically the Museum has been closed. Met Mondays with McQueen—a program that offers a special ticketing opportunity on selected Mondays to view this exhibition only—will not be in effect on July 4, but will resume July 11. Therefore, Independence Day Met Holiday Monday is a rare, added opportunity for the public to view the exhibition at the regular overall recommended admission. Alexander McQueen:
