Judd Foundation Archives contain rich visual and textual documentation of Donald Judd’s life and work. The Archives include: published and unpublished writings, correspondence, photographs, moving image material, drawings, museum, gallery and exhibition files, exhibition ephemera, and publications.

In response to COVID-19, the Archives are closed for on-site research through 2020. The Foundation plans to accept applications for research appointments beginning in November 2020 for appointments in 2021. More information on Research and Guidelines may be found below.


The Judd Foundation Archives are located in Marfa, Texas and are open to on-site and offsite researchers. Each written request for access will be considered on a case-by-case basis. On-site reference appointments must be made at least 30 days in advance. Remote reference requests (through email) will be answered in the order that they are received. Due to the volume of requests, please allow two weeks for the Archivist to respond to your offsite reference request.

The processing of the Judd Foundation Archives is ongoing. Unprocessed materials are not available at this time.

Areas of the Archives that are open to research are:

Museum and Gallery Files
Exhibition Records
Drawings and Notes

Support for the processing of the Judd Foundation Archives was provided by the Stillwater Foundation and grants from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) and the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).
