An electrical fire at Dia:Beacon on Saturday (Oct. 20) damaged artwork by Mary Corse in an exhibit on the first floor, the museum said.
Employees and visitors were evacuated after the fire was discovered just before 6 p.m. and were able to return to the building after about a half-hour. The museum said in a statement the fire appeared to have been caused by an electrical element attached to the artwork that overheated.
