Dia Beacon: A COVID-era Destination


Dia Beacon is located in a former box-making factory in Beacon, NY. Huge spaces have been transformed into experiential art galleries. Some of the installations are fascinating, and some are head-scratching. All of it is an immersive, altering experience.

Reservations required in the time of COVID due to limited capacity. The space is enormous, with few people about.

From the Measurement series, by Mel Bochner. Takes up a room the size of a basketball court.
Yes, that’s a pile of broken glass, artfully arranged. No touching the artwork!
Metal grasses stuck into sand. Oddly compelling.
