The exhibit "I Wanna Be Loved by You: Photographs of Marilyn Monroe" has been extended through April 3 at the Brooklyn Museum.

Among the works on display in the show, which features 200 photographs by 39 photographers, is Bert Stern’s "Pulling Beads" from the portfolio "The Last Sitting," taken just a few weeks before her death in 1962 at age 36 (at right). Other photographers whose works are featured are Eve Arnold, Richard Avedon, Henri Cartier-Bresson and Tom Kelly, whose nude photograph of Monroe was used as the centerfold for the first issue of "Playboy" magazine.

The exhibition was curated by the museum’s own Marilyn Kushner and Matthew Yokobosky.

Admission is free on Saturday, April 2 from 5 pm to 11 pm. The Brooklyn Museum is located at 200 Eastern Parkway at Washington Avenue in Prospect Heights. For museum hours and admission information, call (718) 638-5000 or visit the Web site at
