Will create new gallery space
Dia:Beacon plans to upgrade and expand its lower-level galleries, adding 11,000 square feet of exhibition space within the footprint of the museum and improving the lighting and HVAC systems. The project will also restore the façade and the landscaping at the back of the building.
The improvements are part of a $78 million campaign by the Dia Art Foundation to increase its endowment and renovate its three sites. The nonprofit has raised $60 million so far.
