This gallery is a landmark and a must-visit for any tourist heading to Marfa, a city 150 miles from El Paso. The workings of the gallery are inspired by the long term vision of artist Donald Judd, who settled in Marfa in 1986. You too will be inspired by the splendid works of art displayed here. The Foundation has been built on 340 acres of land, which housed Fort D.A. Russell at one time. You will be amazed at concrete and aluminum works by Donald Judd, the large installation by Dan Flavin, and the sculptures by John Chamberlain. You can also admire the art of others like Ingólfur Arnarsson, Ilya Kabakov, and David Rabinowitch. Go ahead, check it out!
