Dia:Beacon<br />

Locust Grove Historic Estate, Museum and Nature Preserve
Overlooking the Hudson River in Poughkeepsie, New York, the 200-acre Locust Grove Estate includes an Italianate villa designed in 1851 for artist and inventor Samuel F. B. Morse by architect A. J. Davis. Fifty years later the house was renovated and expanded for new owners William and Martha Young. Their daughter, Annette Innis Young, eventually created the foundation that preserves the Estate as a museum today. The Estate opened to the public in 1979 and today features the Young family’s 15,000-piece collection of furniture, paintings, and decorative arts, just as they were used in the early years of the twentieth century.

Dia:Beacon is part of Dia Art Foundation’s constella­tion of sites. Occupying a former Nabisco box printing factory on the banks of the Hudson River, Dia: Beacon presents Dia’s collection of art from the 1960s to the present, as well as special exhibitions, new commissions, and public and education programs. Since its opening in May 2003, Dia:Beacon has helped transform the city of Beacon into a vibrant arts destination for visitors from the region, New York City, and beyond.

Lunch at the Coyote Grill is included.
