“maintaining Donald Judd's art works”
"Too often, I believe, the meaning of a work of art is lost as a result of a thoughtless or unsuitable placement of the work for display. The installation of my own work, for example, as well as that of others, is contemporary with its creation, and the space surrounding the work is crucial to it. Frequently as much thought has gone into the placement of a piece as into the piece itself. Accordingly, it is my hope that such of my works of art which I own at the time of my death are installed at 101 Spring Street in New York City, or in Marfa, Texas, will be preserved where they are installed." Judd Foundation’s mission is to maintain and preserve Donald Judd's permanently installed living and working spaces, libraries, and archives in New York and Marfa, Texas. The Foundation aims to promote a wider understanding of and appreciation for Judd’s artistic legacy by facilitating public access to these spaces and resources and by developing scholarly and educational programs.
