Tickets for a major exhibit of Claude Monet paintings that will open at The Baltimore Museum of Art Oct. 13 will go on sale Friday.
Museum administrators took the unusual step because of active audience interest, according to Arnold Lehman, director of the museum. Up to 250,000 people are expected to attend the exhibit of impressionist masterpieces from the permanent collection of The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Paintings will include the famed water lilies, grain stacks, gardens at Giverny and the Rouen Cathedral.
The exhibit will be open through Jan. 19, 1992 for admission at scheduled half-hour intervals.
Admission prices for the Monet exhibition will be $6.50 per person, $4.50 for students and seniors, and $2 for BMA members. Children under 12 may reserve free tickets. Tickets are available now by calling Ticketron at 481-6000 or visiting Ticketron outlets. A $2 service charge will apply to each ticket reserved through Ticketron, including children's tickets.
