Ideas and shelter: ideas for people; shelter for art. In this case, art is a supplier of ideas and architecture is both. This year we embarked on the restoration of Don’s buildings in Marfa, beginning with his Architecture Office. Ideas and shelter, these embody the mission of Judd Foundation.

Built in the early twentieth century, the Architecture Office is a stately building on the main street of Marfa, with a red brick exterior and tin ceilings. It was important to Don to keep historic downtown Marfa intact. He bought and restored the building to its original façade and had his family names painted across the window—A N and J Grace, F I Yingling, C, R C, and DC Judd Cabinetmakers—alluding, with his wit, to a fictitious architecture firm Clarence Judd, Architecture. Don created a working architecture office, with models, drawings, and prototypes. On the second floor, he made a living space—hanging six paintings by John Chamberlain and installing furniture by Alvar Aalto as well as furniture of his own design.

In two years hence, we plan to have a water-tight, repointed, painted, stuccoed, spackled, and re-roofed historic building—restoring the opportunity for direct engagement with Don’s installation of Chamberlain, Aalto, and his own architectural ideas and plans.

We continue to expand our research, publications, and public programs. This year, we launched the Visiting Scholars program, inviting researchers utilizing the Judd Foundation Archives to present informal talks on new scholarship. In addition, through our annual community programs, like Ranch Day and our Star Party, we have increased public access. At Spring Street, we presented two exhibitions of Don’s work—a complete edition of extruded aluminum pieces and early paintings from 1960 and 1961—allowing visitors to engage with work rarely seen previously. These projects continue next year with the release of our extensive volume of Don’s interviews and a new online catalogue of the works in Don’s spaces.

We build, we rebuild, we research, we collate, we archive, we preserve—all with your help. Please donate and help us build bricks both for the ideas and the spaces that Don spent his life creating.

Support ensures Judd Foundation spaces are cared for and accessible to our growing audiences. Funds enable us to promote Donald Judd’s legacy by publishing his writings, producing a catalogue raisonné, conserving our collection, and stewarding scholarship on his work. It is through support that we are able to activate our spaces in new ways, providing a platform for public integration with the art, architecture, and design of Donald Judd.

Judd Foundation is thankful for the generous support this past year.
