The Solomon R. Guggenheim museum’s exhibition “Hilma Af Klint: Paintings for the Future” has officially become the most-visited exhibition in the museum’s 60-year history.

That influx of foot traffic has been accompanied by a 34 percent increase in membership to the museum, and more than 30,000 copies of the exhibition catalogue have been sold, surpassing a previous record set for the Kandinsky catalogue in 2009, according to the Guggenheim.
This weekend marks the last chance to see the show: it closes Tuesday, April 23, ending a run that began October 12. For this weekend only, in celebration of the show’s success, the museum will having extended hours, staying open from 10:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. On Saturday, beginning at 5, the museum’s pay-what-you-wish program will be in effect.
