Dia : Beacon celebrates 10 with acitivities and events

Dia : Beacon is celebrating 10 years by giving local residents a free day (and a full year) of activities and inspiration.

A Community Free Day is scheduled May 18 at Dia : Beacon. Visitors will get free admission to all of Dia : Beacon’s 22 galleries, plus a special reading of On Kawara’s “One Million Years.” This will be the first live reading of “One Million Years” – which was originally performed at the Dia Center for the Arts – at Dia : Beacon.

Also on tap May 18 is a program for children led by Melissa McGill and guest musicians. And a new installation of works by Alighiero e Boetti will open May 18; the exhibit will remain on view through February 2014.

A slew of events are scheduled for the 10-year anniversary season, with highlights including Mitch McEwen on Robert Irwin (June 8 ) and Anastasia Aukeman on Bernd and Hilla Becher (Aug. 10).
