Dia Beacon, which opened in 2003, is the museum for the Dia Art Foundation’s collection of art from the 1960s to the present and is one of the 11 locations and sites they manage.
The 16-foot-high ceilings, sawtooth skylights, and interior spaces in the former Nabisco box-printing plant make it an appropriate setting for the Dia Foundation’s permanent collection of art.
Each of the artists represented has individual galleries fashioned specifically for their creations. Taken together, their works represent nearly all of the important late 20th-century art movements—abstract expressionism, minimalism, conceptual and pop art.
Highlights include works by Andy Warhol, Dan Flavin, and Richard Serra.
