Dia:Beacon is a museum of contemporary art with more exhibition space than Manhattan’s Guggenheim, Whitney Museum, and MoMA combined. 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 from the 1960s and ‘70s. Each of the artists represented have 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.
