Archival Finding Aids

archival box

In Spring 2021 the Chinati Foundation completed a two-year project to process its physical archives. This work involved surveying, arranging and describing records relating to the artists, works, sites, and structures that make up Chinati and its collection.

On this page you will find the finding aids that were created as part of this work. Chinati is pleased to share these resources and hopes to support researchers remotely and in person when it is safe to do so. For research requests, please email

This work was generously funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
