The DIA Art Foundation has been a staple in the New York art scene since 1974, with locations in Chelsea and Beacon. The mission of the foundation is to empower artists by giving them a platform to showcase their true vision.
By commissioning specific projects for the spaces and collecting pieces from the 60s and 70s, the talent featured throughout the locations is a reflection of the rich history and bright future of art.
From October 2017 to June 2018, visitors were greeted by the work of French artist, François Morellet in both NYC and upstate locations. The inventive painter, sculptor, and installation artist is most known for his patterns and geometric forms. Overall Murals was honored to paint a large mural on the Chelsea site showcasing Morellet’s iconic style. The crisp blue and red lines make a statement amongst the concrete jungle that forms our city.
