Community Day takes place on Oct. 8
On Saturday, Oct. 8, residents of Dutchess and Putnam can visit Dia:Beacon at no charge to view exhibitions and attend tours and talks. An exhibition of works by Robert Morris begins that day and Jeffrey Weiss, a curator from the Guggenheim Museum in New York City, will give a talk about the artist at 2:30 p.m.
The museum has purchased an ensemble of six painted plywood sculptures first shown at the Green Gallery in New York in 1964, as well as a seventh object intended for that exhibition, which have been fabricated under Morris’s supervision specifically for Dia. They include Untitled (Cloud) (1962) and Untitled (Boiler), Untitled (Corner Beam), Untitled (Corner Piece), Untitled (Floor Beam), Untitled (Table), and Untitled (Wall-Floor Slab) (all 1964). It also will show Untitled (Dirt) (1968).
The museum, located at 3 Beekman St., is open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Visitors will need to present ID to prove residency. For more information diaart.org/freeday.
