about us

The Chinati Foundation/La Fundación Chinati is a contemporary art museum founded by the artist Donald Judd. The collection includes work by twelve artists and focuses on permanent, large-scale installations with an emphasis on the relationship between art, architecture, and the surrounding landscape. The museum is located in Marfa, Texas with exhibitions occupying the grounds and buildings of the former army base, Ft. D.A. Russell, as well as the former Wool and Mohair building, situated in the center of town.

Due to the nature of the museum's exhibitions, most of the artwork is accessible by guided tour only. Several tour options varying in length and scope are offered Wednesday through Sunday and include all or part of the permanent collection and special exhibitions. Advance reservations are required to guarantee admission. Please visit www.chinati.org for tour information and to purchase tickets.

Donald Judd's outdoor installation, 15 untitled works in concrete, is available for open viewing daily from 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM free of charge. Reservations are not required to visit this installation.

Artists in the permanent collection include Carl Andre, Ingolfur Arnarsson, John Chamberlain, Dan Flavin, Roni Horn, Donald Judd, Ilya Kabakov, Richard Long, Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen, David Rabinowitch, and John Wesley.
