To get to Beacon, Zane and I caught a Metro North train from Grand Central, which follows the Hudson river for over an hour until you reach the small town. From the station, we followed the road up to the right and in under 10 minutes we reached the entrance to gallery. A huge collection is on display which includes (but is not limited to) artists such as Louise Bourgeois, Robert Irwin, Dan Flavin, Donald Judd, Sol LeWitt, Agnes Martin, Gerhard Richter, Richard Serra and Andy Warhol. The displayed art and curation within series and between spaces creates simply the best modern art experience I have ever had. I am still working on the right words to describe the marvel of it all.
The day cost Zane and I about $30 (US) with the biggest expense being the return train trip. With the Hudson River being frozen over in places, snow on the small surrounding hills and not to mention the best art gallery experience an enthusiast could have - the trip was utterly worth it.
