Map of Broken Glass (Atlantis), Robert Smithson, 1969. Dia Beacon.

 

I went to Dia:Beacon for the first time this past Saturday and I am still thinking about this sculpture by Robert Smithson. The photo does not do it justice, it is really worth a trip out there to see it in person, not to mention all of the other iconic work on display there. The setting is vast and expansive and was the perfect antidote to NYC.

 

Another favorite: Installation by Louise Bourgeois.
