Dispatch from Temple Shipley: Marfa, Texas**
Over the course of the late 1970s through early 90s, Donald Judd managed his artistic practice from the remote west Texas town of Marfa. Working as an architect, furniture designer, critic, and rancher.
Following a productive period of creation in his five story cast-iron studio on Spring Street in New York’s Soho, Judd and his family relocated to Marfa. Adapting a series of abandoned US Army buildings, Judd created a home for an impressive collection of sculptural works. Judd’s dedication to the arts is visible on the Judd and Chinati Foundation tours of his home, offices, and studios in Marfa.
