Donald Judd


Donald Judd revolutionized practices and attitudes surrounding art making and the exhibition of art, primarily advocating for the permanent installation of works by artists, which he accomplished in his studios and residences at 101 Spring Street in New York and in Marfa, Texas.

Born Donald Clarence Judd on June 3, 1928, in Excelsior Springs, Missouri, the artist served in the United States Army in Korea, then attended The College of William and Mary, Williamsburg, Virginia; the Art Students League, New York; and Columbia University, New York, where he received a B.S. in Philosophy in 1953.

While maintaining his residence in New York, Judd moved to Marfa, Texas, in 1972, where he would also live and work until his death on February 12, 1994.

Judd Foundation’s mission is to maintain and preserve these permanently installed living and working spaces, libraries, and archives in New York and Marfa and to promote a wider understanding of and appreciation for Donald Judd's artistic legacy.
