As I mentioned in my last post, I was visiting Beacon, NY today, and of course the main reason for going there was to see the Dia:Beacon Riggio Galleries. I had been there once before, maybe 8 or 10 years ago, so it was good to get back and see it again. A couple of my favorites which I remembered from my first visit – and was glad to get reacquainted with them again – included this sculpture by Louise Bourgeois titled “Crouching Spider,” from 2003.

Another favorite area is the mezzanine where they have 4 or 5 monumental Richard Serra sculptures all in the same long room. It’s an amazing experience to walk around (and at times inside of) these massive sculptures.
