Monet: Weeping Willow

Monet: Weeping Willow

The Kimbell Art Museum will offer its first-ever late-night extended hours event, "Monet til Midnight," on Sept. 14 – the final Saturday for viewing its popular exhibit, Monet: The Late Years.

The exhibit, one of the highest-attended exhibitions in the museum's history, will close on Sept. 15. In celebration of the historic show and to accommodate demand, evening visitors to the exhibit in the Kimbell's Piano Pavilion on the final Saturday will be treated to classical guitar performances in the Pavilion Lobby and refreshments will be available for purchase in the Pavilion Café. 

"The response to Monet: The Late Years has been extraordinary," museum director Eric M. Lee said in a news release. "We've found that attendance typically spikes during the last two weeks of an exhibition, and staying open until midnight will help everyone have the opportunity to experience the glorious works in this epic display."

 Tickets are available on the museum's website and onsite at the Museum Box Office in the Piano Pavilion.

Parking is available in the underground garage, Kahn Building and East Parking lots, and UNT Health Science Center parking garage and surface lots. Rides-sharing is encouraged. The Louis I. Kahn Building will be open for pass-through after 5 p.m. for visitors parking in the campus east lots. More information is available at kimbellart.org.
