Jump to The Chinati Foundation

The Chinati Foundation

The Chinati Foundation/La Fundación Chinati is a contemporary art museum created by Donald Judd. Located on 340 acres of land on the site of former Fort D.A. Russell in Marfa, Texas, Chinati opened to the public in 1986 as an independent, not-for-profit organization. The specific intention of Chinati is to preserve and present to the public permanent large-scale installations by a select group of artists.

Though distinct from Judd Foundation, the two organizations work together to support Judd’s legacy and to preserve the spaces he carefully developed.

Public tours and viewing of the collection, the conservation of the artworks, education programs, artists’ residencies, special exhibitions, lectures, performances, and publications are all vital facets of Chinati’s mission as established by Judd. For more information, please visit the Chinati website or call 432 729 4362.
