In response to the success of the exhibition “Picasso: Masterpieces form the Musée National Picasso, Paris,” the Seattle Art Museum has announced extended hours beginning next week and continuing until the show closes on Jan. 17. There’ll also be some closures this weekend and next for Christmas and New Year’s Day.

Here are the new hours:

Christmas Eve: Open reduced hours, 10 a.m.-3 p.m.

Christmas Day: Closed

New Year’s Eve: Open reduced hours, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.

Ticket prices are reduced by $3 every Thursday and Friday evening from 5-9 pm, and, on Fridays from 6-8 pm, visitors can dance in the Forum to beats spun by DJ ‘G’ and buy drinks at the cash bar.

This exhibition has been highly popular: It’s best to buy tickets online in advance at www.picassoinseattle.org
