Guided visits to Judd Foundation properties in Marfa offer visitors direct engagement with Donald Judd’s art and vision.

Judd Foundation offers two different guided visits of properties in downtown Marfa, La Mansana de Chinati/The Block and The Studios. Advance reservations for guided visits are required. La Mansana de Chinati / The Block Daily, 11:00am-12:30pm and Thursday-Sunday from 4:30pm-5:45pm. Doors open 10 minutes in advance of start time.

La Mansana de Chinati, Judd’s residence and studio in Marfa, informally known as The Block, is the site of some of the artist’s first large-scale architectural projects. Guided visits provide access to Judd’s three main studios, which are permanently installed with his early work, and his personal library, which houses his collection of over 13,000 books. Ticket Prices $25 per person, $12.50 students and seniors, with valid ID. Guided visits are free for full-time residents of Presidio, Brewster, and Jeff Davis counties.

These spaces contain furniture by Judd, as well as his early paintings from the 1950s and 60s, along with an extensive collection of modernist and period furniture, and works by other prominent twentieth century artists and designers.

The huge cement creations in a wide open field make great photo ops! So fun. A friend and I ran all over the place taking pictures inside the creations. A really fun stop!

We took a tour which was interesting, but very pricy for what it is. On top of that, the main house was not shown to us, because of a private event. This is a shame, because we still had to pay the full ticket price...More

Although this is a great place to get a feel for Judd the man, it has a concentration camp feel due to the walled in property. Many of my friends have said this....it didn't bother me as much, but I understood the feeling. The original...More

This is a lovely and intimate tour of Donald Judd's home, which included two libraries, and several rooms of artwork. Our docent clearly knew Judd well, and I felt very privileged to tour the space. Thank you, Eugene!
