The Chinati Foundation
by findingDulcinea Staff
The Chinati Foundation is a haven in Marfa, Texas where architecture and art share their space with the surrounding landscape.
Marfa, Texas is a budding town in the southwestern part of the state, removed from any large cities and growing to be a preferred haven for many artists. Central to Marfa’s cultural identity is Chinati, a gallery founded by the late Donald Judd in 1985. Fostering a connection between landscape and large-scale art, the gallery, on the site of a former army base, primarily houses sculpture and integrates both the interior and exterior of its man-made structures with the region’s surrounding natural wonders.
