The head of the Metropolitan Museum of Art resigned Tuesday as the New York institution struggles to tame a budget deficit despite pulling in record crowds.

Thomas P. Campbell Nike VaporMax Grise Pas Cher , a British expert on tapestries who has been director and chief executive officer of the Met since the beginning of 2009, said he would step down at the end of June.

The Met, one of the world's largest museums with collections spanning the globe from antiquity onward, opened a modern art annex, the Met Breuer Nike VaporMax Noir Pas Cher , last year and says overall attendance has shot up to 7 million a year, 40 percent more than when Campbell took charge.

However, the museum in 2016 said it was cutting costs, including curbing hiring, as its operating deficit had been projected to reach $23 million for that year.

"At a moment when art and culture have an especially profound role to play in fostering mutual understanding Nike VaporMax Off White Pas Cher , I am especially proud that our visitor base is the largest and most diverse in the museum's history," Campbell said in a statement.

"At the same time, we are on track to be financially stable and have a solid strategic path forward," added Campbell, who started at the Met as a curator 22 years ago.

The New York Times in early February quoted anonymous Met insiders who criticized Campbell www.nikevapormaxpascher.fr , saying he was doing too much too soon and essentially competing with New York's esteemed modern art institutions rather than focusing on the museum's core mission.

The newspaper said that the Met had been obliged to put off by several years a plan for a new $600 million modern art wing in the museum's main building off Central Park to address more pressing needs.
