Critical Students Get Visual: Visiting the Galleries at Dia Beacon

4:04 PM






This past weekend some students in the program took the hour and a half train ride up to Beacon, New York to visit Dia: Beacon. Everyone agreed how therapeutic it was to get out of the city for a short time to somewhere quieter. The students enjoyed each others company, beautiful art, and the opportunity to escape the rush of the city for a afternoon. 

"Dia was founded in New York City in 1974 by Philippa de Menil, Heiner Friedrich, and Helen Winkler to help artists achieve visionary projects that might not otherwise be realized because of scale or scope. To suggest the institution’s role in enabling such ambitions, they selected the name “Dia,” taken from the Greek word meaning “through.”'
