(New York, NY – November 30, 2011) – To accommodate public response to the popular exhibition Maurizio Cattelan: All, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum will remain open for an additional two hours on Mondays, beginning December 26, and Tuesdays, beginning December 6, through the remainder of the exhibition until it closes on January 22, 2012. The extended hours on those dates will be offered from 10 am until 7:45 pm. The museum store will be open until 8:15 pm on the late evenings and the Wright restaurant will offer extended hours for bar service with a drink and snack menu until 7 pm.
