“Dia: Beacon in Beacon is the place to sign up for a dose of the avant-garde. Opened in 2005, in a reclaimed Nabisco box factory, the 36,000 square feet of gallery space is perfectly suited to the monumental art-pieces within, spanning from the 1960s to the present. Dia: Beacon calls itself a “daylight museum” thanks to copious natural light provided by more than 34,000-square-feet of skylights and broad spans between supporting columns. The museum has significant holdings of Warhol and features guided tours, gallery talks and more.”
