The DIA Beacon 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.
8:15 a.m. Storm King Art Center with Scott Johnson. Meet in the Pod lobby to travel to the spectacular Storm King Art Center in Mountainville, NY.
