The Chinati Foundation is pleased to host Sul Ross State University’s Borderlands Research Institute for a Pronghorn Field Day on Saturday, July 15. This free workshop includes two lectures and two hands-on demonstrations from field scientists working with the Trans-Pecos Pronghorn Restoration Project.

DONALD JUDD’S FREE-STANDING FLOOR PIECES
In the Ice Plant in downtown Marfa, Chinati is exhibiting, for the first time, two stainless steel, five-part floor works by Donald Judd. Both untitled (U Channel,1980, and V Channel, 1982), each work is composed of five open frame-like structures in brushed metal, each element approximately 5 feet high and 15 feet wide, sitting equally spaced and directly on the floor. These works are one of two groups of large-scale interior works by Donald Judd whose exhibition coincided with Chinati Weekend, October 7-9, 2016. This exhibition is on view until August 2017.
