Yesterday the Brooklyn Museum announced
it would extend the institution's hours beginning in October, with a major focus on getting Brooklynites to come by on weekday evenings. The BK museum, which recently released worrisome attendance figures
despite efforts to reach new and younger audiences, will keep its 11-6 weekend hours, and will remain closed on Monday and Tuesday, but beginning October 6 the doors will stay open until 6pm on Wednesdays (instead of 5) and until 10pm on Thursdays and Fridays! That's just in time for two potentially very popular new exhibitions, a mid-career retrospective of Fred Tomaselli
and a sexy show of women Pop artists
. No more excuses for missing the Brooklyn Museum's by-and-large excellent programing!
