BYU Museum of Art to extend hours for last two weeks of Bloch exhibit

The Brigham Young University Museum of Art will extend its operating hours during the last two weeks of “Carl Bloch: The Master’s Hand” to help accommodate the high demand for tickets as the exhibition nears its closing date.

Since the evening hours have seen the highest demand, the museum will remain open until 10:30 p.m. from April 25 through May 7. During these two weeks the museum will be open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. Keeping the museum’s doors open for an additional hour and a half per day will allow 5,400 more people to reserve tickets in the evening.

Free tickets for the expanded evening hours will be available online beginning Monday, April 18. Tickets are available at CarlBloch.byu.edu.

More than 220,000 people have seen “Carl Bloch: The Master’s Hand” since the religious art exhibition opened in November 2010.
