Note: Due to very limited capacity, this Museum Meetup is open only to current Columbia and Barnard students.
Join the Arts Initiative for a Museum Meetup roadtrip to Dia:Beacon. We will be joined by architect and Columbia GSAPP professor Galia Solomonoff, who in 2003 oversaw the conversion of a 1929 Nabisco box-printing factory into the 300,000 square foot daylight-only museum that is Dia:Beacon. The space has been recognized internationally for its design, as well as its environmental sustainability. The project was designed in collaboration with the artist Robert Irwin, whose first site-specific work for this space is now on view.
Following the discussion, participants will have time to tour the galleries on their own.
