Occupying a former Nabisco box printing factory on the banks of the Hudson River, Dia:Beacon presents Dia’s collection of art from the 1960s to the present as well as special exhibitions, new commissions, and public and education programs. Since its opening in May 2003, Dia:Beacon has helped transform the city of Beacon into a vibrant arts destination for visitors from the region, New York City, and beyond.
The newer exhibitions by woman artists that are presently on view are: Anne Truitt, Michelle Stuart, Mary Corse, and Dorothea Rockburne.
