Another Art Installation from Donald Judd.  Take a walk along the border of the property at The Chinati Foundation to admire these concrete shapes and the surrounding scenery.  If you look closely in the next to the last photo, you can see the Marfa Water Tower and the dome of the Presidio County Courthouse.  🙂

100 untitled works in mill aluminum

IMG_2457

The exhibit called “100 untitled works in mill aluminum” by Donald Judd can be discovered at The Chinati Foundation just outside of downtown Marfa.  These aluminum pieces are housed in two former artillery sheds which are awesome in their own rights.  As per the website, “Each of the 100 works has the same outer dimensions (41 x 51 x 72 inches), although the interior is unique in every piece. The Lippincott Company of Connecticut fabricated the works, which were installed over a four-year period from 1982 through 1986.”  Unfortunately, they don’t allow photos inside the building, but I think the lighting and reflections from walking along the outside windows made for some nice shots.

Presidio County Courthouse

The Presidio County Courthouse is one of the first things that catches your eye in Marfa.  The sun shines brightly on the Courthouse dome which is perched on top of three floors of County offices.  The interior is just as striking with its stairways of pecan.  If you are a fan of architecture like me, then you must stroll through and around the building to admire the beauty.
