Founded in 1974, this modern art gallery is well-known for a highly unusual, permanent display by conceptual artist Walter De Maria. De Maria's work is a massive display of a 2 foot layer of dirt!

I love art but wasn't a minimal art fan and Mr M rarely jumps onboard with me to see contemporary exhibitions but we both LOVE this museum. The curation, the exhibitions, the art works, the space, the grounds, the location. It's wonderful.

Situated in the old Nabisco box factory which has been beautifully turned into a great viewing space. The cafe offers a great selection tion of food. Occasionally a live performance. Easy access from I84 or the train station.

This former Nabisco plant, now modern art museum is really not to be missed! The variety of work was diverse and thought provoking. But being a bit arrogant, I did say,"I really could do that." The installation art was amazing.

Dia Beacon is north of New York City; the train ride on the Hudson River line takes about 90 minutes or so. The building has about 300,000 square feet of floor space, so some very large works of art can be shown on a permanent...More
