Donald Judd building in Marfa restored by architects Schaum/Shieh

The Central Marfa Historic District in Marfa, Texas, which includes 11 repurposed and preserved buildings by Donald Judd, may be newly recognised on the USA’s National Register of Historic Places, but its cultural and architectural significance is more deeply rooted, to say the least. Exceptionally maintained and made publicly accessible by the Chinati Foundation and the Judd Foundation, Judd’s structures in the historic Hispanic community include the John Chamberlain Building, named after the American sculptor, which recently reopened following a restoration by Schaum/Shieh architects. Originally a wool and mohair warehouse from the 1940s, this Donald Judd building was adapted by the artist into a gallery space dedicated to Chamberlain’s work and first opened to the public in 1983.

This Weekend, Celebrate Art, Donald Judd, and the Chinati Foundation in Marfa, Texas

For nearly two years, museums have struggled to stay afloat during the pandemic, which has been especially true in COVID-ravaged west Texas. But Marfa’s Chinati Foundation—world renowned for being the former homestead of the late minimalist artist Donald Judd and for housing the large collection of works he left behind—is slowly making a comeback. From Friday, October 8, through Sunday, October 10, visitors can celebrate the organization’s 34th annual Weekend Open House, the first time it has been held since 2019—in-person.
