We stopped by during a visit to Beacon to get out of the rain and, well, I just didn’t get it. Most of the art is well beyond my simple grasp and it seems like they could have done a lot more with such an...More
Incredible contemporary Art Museum
Dia beacon is an amazing contemporary Art Museum located right on the Hudson river and what was once a manufacturing town. It is housed in a former box factory which is an incredible showcase for always interesting rotating exhibitions.
