Chinati’s master plan was made possible with support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, Still Water Foundation, Kirkpatrick Family Fund, and Chinati Foundation Trustees. Chinati’s educational and public programming is supported with generous grants from the Texas Commission on the Arts, the National Endowment for the Arts, the Brown Foundation, the William Randolph Hearst Foundations, the Carl B. & Florence E. King Foundation, Permian Basin Area Foundation, and the Cowles Charitable Trust. Chinati is grateful for the generous financial support of our members and the support and in-kind contributions of the people of Marfa and far West Texas including the City of Marfa, Big Bend Brewing Company, Big Bend Roasters, Crowley Theater, Hotel St. George, Tim Crowley, Rob Crowley and Marfa Hardware Company.
