MCQUEEN EXHIBIT, “SAVAGE BEAUTY” BREAKS RECORDS

MCQUEEN EXHIBIT “SAVAGE BEAUTY” JOINS THE RANKS OF LEONARDO DA VINCI’S “MONA LISA,” PABLO PICASSO, AND KING TUT’S TREASURES ON THE MET’S TOP TEN MOST-VISITED LIST.

ArtInfo.com reported on the closing of the Alexander McQueen exhibit this week, and did a little statistical research to illustrate just how major a success the show (and ultimately, the artist) was. Here are a few numbers to think about:

* 661,509: The total number of visitors who saw “Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty” from May 4 to August 7.

* 2,000,000: The number of square feet that make up the Met, allowing for the long lines to wind throughout the museum.

* 100,000: The number of copies sold of the exhibition’s catalogue, “Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty” by Andrew Bolton.

* 80,000: The number of visitors who attended the show during its final week.

* 31,000: The number of people who didn’t mind standing in line for up to six hours through 90-degree temperatures and thunderstorms during the exhibition’s final week.
