Meet in the lobby of The Pod to walk to Grand Central Station and take the train up the Hudson River Valley to Beacon, New York.

Dia: Beacon Information

The DIA Foundation is located in Chelsea, and for years it has promoted experimental  artists  whose  work  could  not  easily  be  installed  in conventional  galleries.  In  addition  to  temporary  shows,  DIA  also acquired a permanent collection, in some cases on a very large scale, which could not be shown in the Chelsea facility.  To solve this problem, it purchased an enormous old Nabisco factory located in Beacon, a small city 60 miles north of New York City.  This museum now attracts a worldwide audience and reflects a growing trend of exhibiting major collections of contemporary art outside metropolitan areas.  Our visit is scheduled to begin before the museum officially opens so that we can view a site-specific work by Michael Heizer, which is roped off once the public enters.

9:00 a.m. The Cloisters Museum and Gardens with Ruth Kolarik and Tamara Bentley
Meet in the lobby of The Pod

The Cloisters Museum and Gardens, the branch of The Metropolitan Museum of Art devoted to the art and architecture of medieval Europe, was assembled from architectural elements, both domestic and religious, that largely date from the twelfth through the fifteenth century. The building and its cloistered gardens—located in Fort Tryon Park in northern Manhattan—are treasures in themselves, effectively part of the collection  housed  there. The  Cloisters'  collection  comprises approximately two thousand works of art.

9:00 a.m.   Didier William Studio visit with Andy Tirado
Meet in the lobby of the Pod to leave for the studio 334 Eastern Parkway, Apt 5A, Brooklyn, NY, Studio 925  718-755-0437

Didier William is a Haitian visual artist who was born in 1983, and holds an MFA in painting from Yale University, and a BFA in painting from the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA). William currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. He was a 2009 recipient of the Toby Devan Lewis Fellowship in painting as well as the 2006 recipient of the Morris Lewis Award for painting. He has exhibited paintings in group shows at Kravets Wehby gallery in New York, Deitch Projects in Long Island City, Swann Galeries in New York City, Gallerie Schuster in Berlin, as well as traveling exhibitions in Baltimore, Kansas City, Philadelphia, and Greece. He was a 2012/13 Artist in Residence at the Marie Walsh Sharpe Art Foundation's Space Program in Brooklyn NY.
