15 outdoor installations of Donald Judd's untitled works in concrete as well as 100+ untitled works in aluminum housed indoors. I'd suggest looking at his pieces and history online prior to visiting to be sure it appeals to you as there are not many other attractions in the area. The Chinati Foundation has odd hours as well so check carefully... 更多
Well, YOU might not love it, but I did. You need to see it all for yourself. Nothing I can say will match what you'll experience. The Judd aluminum blocks are just awesome, and changes constantly with the light, weather and seasons, as will Irwin's Dawn till Dusk. Do yourself a favor and GO... with no expectations, just an open... 更多
We took the shorter of the two guided tours offered and Carolyn was our guide. She was both passionate and knowledgeable about all the installations. First up: the 100 aluminum boxes of Donald Judd, housed in two renovated Calvary barracks. The interplay with light from outside and the aluminum boxes was beautiful, as were the views of the land outside,... 更多
A fantastic combination of land, light, architecture and art all working together. Guided half day tour with Jessica was very worthwhile. Different times of day create different moods. We visited twice!

My group did a guided tour of the Judd, Flavin and Irwin exhibitions. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly. I learned a great deal about Marfa's history as well as about contemporary art. I hope to return someday!
Donald Judd controlled all aspects of this display and the interior space and the way he connects it to the exterior landscape can't be replicated. His complex open cubes constructed with stainless steel planes are superby crafted, placed with extraordinary care and create their own symphony. But don't miss the John Chamberlains (spectacular, in town), Ilya Kabakov, the 6 buildings... 更多
There are many ways to describe the Chinati Foundation, but it depends on what you expect and what you know and/or like/dislike about art. Some come for Donald Judd & Co., some come because it's just something to do in Marfa. If you're not familiar with the Donald Judd story, do a little advance homework and it will enhance your... 更多
