Dia:Beacon presents Dia Art Foundation’s collection from the 1960s to the present as well as special exhibitions, new commissions, and public and education programs.

Located on the banks of the Hudson River, in a former Nabisco box printing factory that is a model of early twentieth century industrial architecture, and is listed on the State and National Register of Historic Places. In keeping with Dia’s history of single-artist site-related presentations, each gallery  within the space was designed specifically for the presentation of one artist’s work.

Dia offers free admission at its permanent artist sites throughout New York City, including Walter De Maria’s renowned The New York Earth Room (1977) and The Broken Kilometer (1979) in SoHo; Joseph Beuys’s 7000 Eichen (7000 Oaks), inaugurated at Documenta in 1982 and now on view in Chelsea; and Max Neuhaus’s sound installation Times Square (1977) in Midtown, all of which have been free to the public since their inception­.
