The mission of the International Woman's Foundation is to enhance the intellectual, spiritual and physical lives of women in the arts. The International Woman's Foundation is located in Marfa, Texas and housed in the 12,000 square foot, 1898-1920 former Bachelor's Quarters and Officers Club (Building 98) at historic Fort D.A. Russell. Founded in 2002 by the International Woman's Foundation (IWF), a non-profit 501 (c) 3 public foundation, is a blend of art and science. Building 98 is specifically known for the hauntingly beautiful murals painted during WWII by two German POW's of General Irwin Rommel's (The Desert Fox) elite Afrika Korps, who were billeted at Fort Russell after their defeat by General George Patton's Third Army in North Africa. The United States First Horse Cavalry of the Black Hawk Knight Dragoons was among the many regiments posted at Fort Russell. The late South African artist, Aedwyn Darroll, who served as the IWF Chairman of the Board of Artistic Advisors, evoked the turn-of-the-century, romantic border military history, in the beautifully stylized, IWF Black Hawk logo. During WWII Building 98 continued to be the social center of the area with the nearby Marfa Army Air Field as a training center for pilots. Building 98 is listed as a National Historic Site by the United States Department of the Interior, a Recorded Historic Texas Landmark by the Texas Historical Commission. January 2007 saw the entire grounds of old Fort Russell listed as a National Historic Monument by the United States Department of the Interior. It is considered a gem of Border Military History and Heritage Tourism. Tours are offered by appointment to visit this beautiful property. IWF offers gallery space for painters and sculptors and hosts seminars and art classes. Building 98 is also a favorite venue for writers seeking a peaceful place for the creative spirit. IWF receives both female and male, mature, short-term artists-in-residence of all disciplines. Artists installations are shown in the Building 98 galleries throughout the year.
