The Beacon museum's expansive galleries have been specifically designed for the display of the artworks to which Dia is committed, many of which, because of their character or scale, could not be easily accommodated by more conventional museums. Works installed at the museum range from Andy Warhol's 1978 <em>Shadows</em> (a single work comprising multiple canvases); to three of Richard Serra's monumental sculptures in the Torqued Ellipses; "monuments" for V. Tatlin, a series of fluorescent light works by Dan Flavin; several mixed-media installations by Joseph Beuys and Agnes Martin's 1999 paintings <em>Innocent Love</em>, among others.

The Museum also encourages local talent with community art exhibitions. One of the directives of the Museum is to collect, preserve and present the works of accomplished East End artists. Guild Hall Museum has a significant permanent collection and archive of approximately 2,100 works of art.</p> <p>In 1931, when Mrs. Lorenzo E. Woodhouse dedicated Guild Hall as a cultural center for the community, <em style="line-height: 19px; font-size: small;">The New York Times </em>noted that Howard Russell Butler’s portrait of Thomas Moran, on exhibit in the galleries, was not a loan but an acquisition. “It marks the beginning of a permanent art collection which it proposed to build up in Guild Hall,” the newspaper explained.</p> <p>From the beginning over 80 years ago, the holdings have grown significantly in size and scope. In the early 1960’s, the collection began to focus on the artists who have lived and worked in the region, including some of the country’s most celebrated painters, sculptors, photographers and graphic artists. In 1973, the museum received the distinction of being accredited by the American Association of Museums, and it was reaccredited in 2010.</p> <p>Today, the holdings of the 19th, 20th and 21st century art include paintings, sculpture, prints, watercolors, photographs and drawings by internationally distinguished artists such as Pollock, Krasner, deKooning, and Lichtenstein.

A variety of exhibitions, public programs, and publications all investigate what gives New York City its singular character.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">Exhibitions in recent seasons have focused on wide-ranging subjects, illuminating the events and issues that define New York:  how to make this city more sustainable by the year 2030; New York’s emergence from the shadow of its trans-Atlantic sister city, Paris, to take center stage in the fields of design, fashion, and the arts; Catholic New Yorkers, a once-persecuted minority group that transformed the cultural, institutional, and political life of the broader community;  hip hop and its impact on fashion;  Robert Moses and the transformation of the metropolis in the mid-twentieth century;  how immigrants created their own affordable housing in the early twentieth century; the story of a young Russian woman who reinvented American fashion; and other illuminating and fascinating aspects of New York’s rich and diverse past and present. These facets of the city’s development also serve us well in that they help to inform us as we all consider our city’s future.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">The Museum’s public programs also play a vital role in educating and enlightening visitors and participants. Leading observers of the city, including Ken Auletta, Robert Caro, David Gonzalez, Tim Gunn, Roger Kahn, Russell Shorto, and Robert A. M. Stern, have shared their insights in panel discussions and lectures. Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, former Mayor Edward I. Koch, Congressman Charles Rangel, Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney, City Council Speaker Christine C. Quinn, Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer, former Deputy Mayor Dan Doctoroff, and other current and former elected officials have participated in our events and programs.  And on many weeknights, Museum audiences find visionary architects and photographers, or dedicated urban planners, the most colorful chefs and interior designers, or the talented stars of the Broadway stage—all right here on <i>our</i> stage, discussing their latest projects or delighting audiences with music, song, and dance.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">The Museum is undergoing dramatic, physical transformation.  The new, 2,800 sq. ft. James G. Dinan and Elizabeth R. Miller Gallery opened just last fall, as did the state-of-the-art curatorial center, designed to store and preserve the Museum's vast but fragile collections of photographs, prints, textiles, and works on paper. The creation of these new spaces marks the completion—on time and on budget—of the first phase of the Museum’s ambitious Renovation and Expansion Project. The second phase of the project has begun, which will expand gallery space on the third floor and create modern classrooms in the Frederick A. O. Schwarz Children’s Center, while providing new offices for curators, educators, and other Museum personnel.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">We hope you will join us as we continue to explore what makes New York New York.  And we thank you for your support.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;"><b>Susan Henshaw Jones</b></span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;"> President and Ronay Menschel Director of the Museum of the City of New York</span></p> Mon, 31 Mar 2014 00:04:03 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Venues/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Venues/list
