Chinati Foundation Endowment Challenge Grant

Chinati Foundation, Marfa, TX

2005

Lannan Foundation issued a challenge grant to Chinati Foundation to significantly increase the corpus of their existing endowment. The Chinati Foundation/La Fundación Chinati is a contemporary art museum based upon the ideas of its founder, Donald Judd. The specific intention of Chinati is to preserve and present to the public permanent large-scale installations by a limited number of artists. The emphasis is on works in which art and the surrounding landscape are inextricably linked.
