Dia: Beacon

“What interests me is the opportunity for all of us to become something different from what we are, by constructing spaces that contribute something to the experience of who we are.” – Richard Serra

We went to Dia Becaon this weekend to celebrate Rob’s birthday. The museum is located in a former printing plant built in 1929 by Nabisco. With 240,000 square feet of exhibition space, the museum is particularly suited to the needs of large-scale installations, paintings, and sculptures. I was most impressed with the Richard Serra installation. As I spiraled in to the core of one of his steel spheres I felt claustrophobic and anxious and I loved every step. It is literally, quite breathtaking.
