We visited the Chinati foundation during a trip to Texas. I am not the kind of person who can be identified as "art fanatic", but i have to say that i found it interesting. Not the outside (the cement shapes are not very interesting) but the aluminium frames and the light effects are nice.
Contemporary Art it is not for everyone, but even if you do not like it or understand it, I recommend you to visit Chinati Foundation! It is really impressive the dimensions of the structures in concrete! Use google maps to know the instructions! If you want to visit the whole thing you will need to pay if you just want... 更多
Not necessarily a fan of this type of art, but the fiance brought me along. Judd's work was worth seeing. If we go back, we would definitely get there in time for the tour!
Well worth the time and money to see these exhibits. Ralph, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable and personable.
Complete waste of $25 or so. It's pretentious rubbish if i'm honest. We went round some side exhibits in the old barracks by mistake until some member of staff told us we couldn't look at these unless we paid for a private tour. The aluminium constructions are fascinating for a moment or do but if just doesn't really justify the... 更多
I was visiting Marfa for a wedding and had a day to kill. I spent a few hours at Chinati exploring the installation and appreciating the work. I definitely recommend visiting if time allows. FYI - to view the large format installation is free. To view the works on the campus has a nominal fee.
I really enjoyed going to the Chinati Foundation exhibit. The cost is to help fund the foundation. The location in Marfa is such a great opportunity for a small town to have an exhibit that would most likely be in a New York or Chicago. I can see why Judd wanted to build it here, because the open terrain allows... 更多
The Chinati Foundation is the best artist incubator I've ever seen. The home for this collective is a sprawling WW1 cavalry base just south of 67, in the town of Marfa. Artists and non-artists will appreciate the work that is on display as a permanent collection, and the rotating installations that fill the two large arena-sized buildings on-site.

2nd trip to Chianti...Powerful mill work and artistry in a lovely setting. But the Foundation could be more welcoming and less smug. A few signs to help interpret for non-art aficionado types would help. And even a sign pointing to the Oldenburg Horseshoe would be nice. Great birding around the fields.
Took the 2/12 hour tour of 3 art installations. The guide was very knowledgeable and articulate. Exhibits were all of modern hipster art that could be found in SOHO Manhattan if real estate was not so expensive. Very interesting to see such work in nowhere land West Texas. A great visit that is worth the price.
