Dia:Beacon, Dan Flavin

After a mad dash from Brooklyn through the insanity that is Manhattan on Saturday to Grand Central station, my boyfriend and I just barely made our Metro North train to Beacon.

Dia:Beacon is incredible and I am well aware of the fact that I am not the first person to say so. Not only did the train ride along the Hudson immediately alleviate the stress of commuting on Saturday, but the physical space where all that is Dia:Beacon exists is extremely serene. 

I was really taken by Dan Flavin’s work. I found it curious that in a space with so much natural light that I loved the pieces with artificial light most, but maybe it is just as simple as that.
