On the occasion of the fall exhibition Picasso Black and White, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum will remain open for two additional hours on select evenings for the duration of the exhibition, which is on view from October 5, 2012, through January 23, 2013.
The extended hours will be offered on Sundays and Mondays, with the exception of holidays on December 24 and 31, from 10 am until 8 pm. During the late evenings, the museum store will be open until 8:30 pm, and both Cafe 3 and the Wright restaurant, serving a full bar and snack menu, will be open until 7 pm.
In addition, the museum will be open on Thursday, December 27, a day of the week in which the Guggenheim is typically closed, from 10 am until 5:45 pm.
The supplemented evening hours will offer visitors an opportunity to view the first major exhibition to focus on Pablo Picasso's lifelong exploration of a black-and-white palette throughout his career, represented in 118 paintings, sculptures, and works on paper, including many works that have never before been exhibited or published.
