For Dia’s series of Community Free Days, residents of neighboring counties Columbia, Dutchess, Greene, Orange, Putnam, Rockland, Sullivan, Ulster, and Westchester are invited to visit Dia:Beacon free of charge twice a year on select Saturdays. The dates coincide with "Second Saturday Beacon," a monthly city-wide arts and culture open house. Please bring a driver's license or other government-issued ID for entry to the museum.
Dia:Beacon museum guides and guest speakers will be stationed in the room of a single artist for 1 hour, and will host ongoing, informal conversations with the public. These conversation stations will be held in the following galleries: Franz Erhard Walther; Richard Serra, Torqued Ellipses installation room; On Kawara; Agnes Martin; and Michael Heizer.
