AAA Editor Notes
The Chinati Foundation, 1 Cavalry Row, behind the U.S. Customs and Border Protection office, is a contemporary art museum founded by artist Donald Judd. Situated on 340 acres at the site of former cavalry post Fort D.A. Russell, the museum explores the connection between the art and architecture and the natural landscape surrounding them. Eighteen buildings, including structures that once served as army barracks and artillery sheds, house works by Judd and 11 other artists. There are outdoor displays, too.
Visitors may choose from two different guided tours: the 6-hour Full Collection tour and the 2-hour Selections tour. Self-guiding tours include an outdoor tour of Judd’s 15 works in concrete and an indoor tour of his 100 aluminum works, which are housed inside artillery sheds. Temporary exhibits and special programs are presented throughout the year.
Note: Photography is not permitted.
Guided tours are available.
