Dia Beacon

This Saturday April 4th, I visited Dia Beacon, a contemporary art museum that opened in May 2003 that occupies 300,000 square feet within a former industrial building situated on the  banks of the Hudson River in Beacon, New York. Dia presents a vast range of artworks by an array of some of the most significant artists from the last half century in an incredible venue comprised uniquely and largely of all natural and indirect lighting. Dia’s space allows the works of art to be curated within a large and open setting and affords the museum the opportunity to show a depth of works from each artist that is rarely seen in other museums; the result is spectacular!
