The Museum of Modern Art to Continue Extended Friday and Saturday Evening Hours Through 2017

Following the success of its extended Summer Hours program in July and August, The Museum of Modern Art will continue to offer extended hours, remaining open until 9:00 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays through December 30 in order to provide more opportunities for visitors—and especially New Yorkers who work during the day—to enjoy the Museum in the evening hours. Cocktails and snacks are available for purchase, and The Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Sculpture Garden will be open late (weather permitting). UNIQLO Free Friday Nights will also be extended until 9:00 p.m. through the end of the year.

In addition to works on display in the Museum’s world-class collection galleries, this fall’s exhibitions include Max Ernst: Beyond Painting, which surveys the career of the preeminent Dada and Surrealist artist through works in the Museum’s collection, with particular emphasis on his ceaseless experimentation; Louise Bourgeois: An Unfolding PortraitItems: Is Fashion Modern?Club 57: Film, Performance, and Art in the East Village, 19781983, and Stephen Shore. The late hours also provide additional opportunities to see this summer’s major exhibitions before they close—Robert Rauschenberg: Among Friends is open through September 17, and Frank Lloyd Wright at 150: Unpacking the Archive is open through October 1.

Screening in the Museum’s Roy and Niuta Titus Theaters this fall are Kelly Reichardt: Powerfully Observant, 3-D Funhouse: Recent Restorations from the 3-D Film Archive, and Modern Matinees: Directed by John Cassavetes.

The second-floor espresso bar will remain open until 9:00 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, offering wine and light fare in addition to its regular menu. The Garden Bar will remain open until 9:00 p.m. through October 1. (Cafe 2 and Terrace 5 will continue to close every day at 5:00 p.m.; Cafe 2 remains open until 7:30 p.m. on Fridays.)
