"I used to love visiting the Dan Flavin Art Institute in Bridgehampton and if you like Dia:Chelsea, Dia: Beacon is well-worth the drive. This 300,000-square-foot former industrial building, now houses one of the world’s most distinguished collections of contemporary art along the banks of the Hudson River."
“Getting there is as beautiful as being there when you take the Bear Mountain Bridge through Cold Spring.”
“Many people combine a trip to Storm King with a trip to Dia. While you could spend a day (or more) exploring each, experiencing both allows you to see works by some of the same artists in two very different settings.”
Occupying a former Nabisco box printing factory on the banks of the Hudson River, Dia:Beacon presents Dia’s collection of art from the 1960s to the present as well as special exhibitions, new commissions, and public and education programs. Since its opening in May 2003, Dia:Beacon has helped transform the city of Beacon into a vibrant arts destination for visitors from the region, New York City, and beyond.
