Dr Hirsh is an exceptional lecturer, this was the 4th Context seminar of hers that I have enrolled in and each one was fantastic. This lecture covered a number of significant works and artists exhibited at the museum as well as information about Dia in general. She also provided suggestions for various art institutions nearby that would make for a fabulous art filled weekend. I visited Dia:Beacon during September 2019 and had planned to return last year. She has now provided me with lots of information to make for a better experience at the museum when I do make my way back.
Dr Hirsh is always incredibly well prepared, presents in an accessible manner, and is easy to communicate with both during and after her lectures. She is very responsive to inquiries and will even supplement her lectures with additional reading material and/or suggestions. Highly recommend
This was a great seminar if you are planning a trip to upstate New York/Hudson River area. It was especially helpful also in learning how to view very large, conceptual art. This type of sculpture is most often hard to understand and I feel more prepared for my future visit to Dia:Beacon.
Interesting discussion of a very different museum showing art that not exposed to me before
