On Sunday, the “Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty” exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art became the eighth-most visited show in the museum’s history.But the 658,000 or so people who saw the attraction made up just a fraction of the Met’s annual visitors.
Last year, for example, more than 5.2 million people trekked up the museum’s iconic stairs and through its galleries.
