Dia to Share History at Howland

Talk will include drawing exercise

Educators from the Dia Art Foundation will visit the Howland Public Library in Beacon at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, April 19, to discuss the foundation and its history and goals and share a drawing exercise related to its collections.

Founded in 1974, the Dia Art Foundation sites (diaart.org) include artworks, installations and exhibitions at Dia:Beacon, in New York City and farther afield, such as Walter De Maria’s The Lightning Field (1977) near Quemado, New Mexico, and The Vertical Earth Kilometer (1977) in Kassel, Germany. Dia provides artists with long-term support to realize ambitious projects.

Materials for the drawing exercise will be provided. The Howland Library is located at 313 Main St.
