Dia:Beacon Spring BenefitEach spring we celebrate the museum with the Dia:Beacon Spring Benefit 2011, a full day of art and performance that provides crucial support for Dia. The Co-Chairs of this event, Sandra Brant and Ingrid Sischy, Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez of Proenza Schouler, and Alison Spear,  have put together a fantastic family day of art and adventure. For what to wear, we  put together this artful ensemble by Proenza Schouler. The day-long event includes a  performance of Robert Whitman’s MoonRain (2010) and a seated lunch amidst John Chamberlain’s sculptures. Guests will have an opportunity to explore Dia’s galleries throughout the day, and a family program will be offered during lunch for younger guests to enjoy.  Guests are invited to spend time in the museum at their leisure and explore Dia’s long-term installations and the new exhibitions.
