Community Day 2008
The Chinati Foundation is pleased to invite all Big Bend area residents and visitors to a free Community Day celebration on Sunday, June 15, 2008. Visitors can explore the Chamberlain Building, Donald Judd’s concrete and aluminum sculptures and Dan Flavin’s evocative light installations at their own pace from 10-2PM, and enjoy light refreshments kindly donated by local establishments. (Museum staff and volunteers from the community will be on hand to answer questions.)
The celebration will continue from 6-9PM under the Highland Street pavilion along the railroad tracks with a delicious free BBQ prepared by local caterers Lopez’s Kitchen, and music performed by Mariachi Aguila.
Community Day is generously sponsored by Pablo Alvarado.
This year, an expanded Community Day and new educational programs throughout the year will take the place of Chinati Open House in October. Information about upcoming events can be found at www.chinati.org and in the Big Bend Sentinel. Chinati especially looks forward to inviting Big Bend residents to the public opening of its Fall exhibition featuring the work of Scandinavia’s foremost abstract artist, Olle Baertling, on October 11.
