Description:

Located inside a former printing plant built in 1929 by Nabisco, the Dia:Beacon opened its doors in 2003 to welcome visitors to its 240,000 square feet of exhibition space filled with the work of art world luminaries from the 1960s to the present. According to Assistant Director Steven Evans, Dia:Beacon is one of the world's largest contemporary art museum, but it exhibits only two dozen artists. For example, one entire gallery space is filled with the 72 panels of the Andy Warhol's Shadows (1978-79).
