A short train-ride up the Hudson is an incredible visual art and sculpture museum Dia:Beacon presents Dia Art Foundation’s collection from the 1960’s to the present as well as special exhibitions, new commissions, and public and education programs. The space is really architecturally focussed with a collection from a very specific period in contemporary art. http://www.diaart.org/
Louise Lawler’s audio work, Birdcalls (1972/1981), can be intermittently heard at Dia:Beacon’s west garden. http://www.diaart.org/exhibitions/main/104
The Dia:Beacon badges – made from tin, a different bright colour every day and folded onto clothing these are a seriously classy lanyard/badge/pin.
