Marfa's Art: Chinati Foundation Self-Guided Visits

The Chinati Foundation is now listing some self-guided visit options to some collections in Marfa.  Last weekend, on a rare icy and foggy day, we took advantage of this opportunity to visit the Donald Judd 15 Untitled Works in Concrete.

Chinati's website says this about visiting the boxes:

"Visitors may walk the kilometer long outdoor path and view Judd's 15 works in concrete free of charge, Wednesday-Sunday, 9 am to 5 pm.  The work is located on the main Chinati campus.  Access to the work is on a rocky, uneven path approximately 1.5 miles in length, round trip.  Please check in at the front office before visiting these works."

There are two other self-guided visit opportunities, the Donald Judd 100 Works in Mill Aluminum (fee) and a special exhibition, Zoe Leonard 100 North Neville.  Check this page for details.

The main Chinati Foundation campus is the site of the former Fort D.A. Russell, and the architecture still evokes the feeling of being on an old military base.
