Expecting big crowds, art museum to sell tickets in advance to fall Monet exhibit

January 31, 1991

Because of an editing error, an announcement yesterda about this fall's Monet exhibit at the Baltimore Museum of Art incorrectly stated that tickets would be available beginning today at the BMA. In fact, they must be purchased at Ticketron outlets. Tickets will be available at the museum beginning Sept.1.

Tickets for the Baltimore Museum of Art's fall exhibition of paintings by Claude Monet will go on sale tomorrow at the BMA and Ticketron outlets.

The exhibit, "Claude Monet: Impressionist Masterpieces from the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston," will run from Oct. 13 through Jan. 19, 1992. A BMA spokeswoman said more than a quarter million visitors are expected for the show, prompting the move to sell tickets -- timed for entry every half-hour -- far in advance of the opening.


The exhibit features 32 works from the Boston museum's Monet collection, billed as the largest and most distinguished collection of paintings by the impressionist outside of Paris. As part of a cooperative agreement between the two museums, works from the BMA's Cone Collection will displayed next fall in Boston.

Admission to the Monet show, which includes general museum admission, will be $6.50; $4.50 for students and senior citizens; and $2 for BMA members. Children under 12 will be admitted free, but they too must reserve tickets. A $2 service charge will be applied to all tickets bought through Ticketron. Call (800) 448-9009 or 481-6000 in Baltimore.
