Along the Hudson: trip to Dia Beacon & Storm King Art Center

The collection contains, among others, works by Richard Serra, Donald Judd, Fred Sandback, Bernd and Hilla Becher, Sol LeWitt, Gerhard Richter and Dan Flavin. Afterwards visit the Storm King Art Center and Park with Maya Lin’s Wavefield and permanent installations and sculptures by Andy Goldsworthy, Isamu Noguchi, Kenneth Snelson and Alexander Calder among others.
