The museum said in a release that it will provide a refund for those who purchased tickets in advance, hoping to see the exhibit.
"The decision to close the exhibition early was an extremely difficult one, which we do not take lightly," the museum said in a statement. "We tried to explore every option, but regretfully, we were unable to resolve the issue without closing the galleries. Once we decided to close the exhibition, we needed to move swiftly and there was not time for advance warning."
The exhibit will not be immediately replaced. Instead, the museum will use the next six weeks to address the leak.
Concurrent with the High exhibit, Jackson Fine Art has a separate exhibit featuring some of Mann's work on display, titled "Remembered Light & Landscapes." That show is on view until Dec. 21.
