Concrete artworks sit in open ranch land.

Running the length of Chinati Foundation's border are 15 concrete works by Donald Judd. Created between 1980 and 1984, each piece is comprised of between two and six individual units of the same size, formed by 25-inch-thick concrete slabs. In preparation for creating these concrete works, Judd made a series of drawings, exploring the many possibilities for arranging the units. Cast and assembled on-site in Marfa, these works were the first to be installed at the museum.
