Dia Trees

Robert Irwin at Dia Beacon, Beacon, NY

On a recent visit to Dia Beacon, Lou and I spent some time wandering around the grid of trees near the entrance to the museum. The geometric planting is the design of artist Robert Irwin. The squarely trimmed branches create living walls that rise above two intersecting boardwalks going nowhere. It was a contemplative spot to getaway to, and I snapped this funny picture of Lou in the midst of it.
