The Chinati Foundation Archives are located in Marfa, Texas and contain historical and operational records of Chinati and the former Fort D.A. Russell, upon which it is located.

The Chinati archives remain closed to the on-site researchers until Spring 2021 while we undertake a multiyear project to process, preserve, and provide access to its archives. This project is made possible by a very generous grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. During this time we are able to accommodate some remote research requests according to staff availability and processing status. For more information, please email
