Day 3: Chinati

Today we went to the Chinati foundation, where we saw works by Dan Flavin, John Chamberlain, Carl Andre, Roni Horn, Ilya Kabakov, Richard Long, Claes Oldenburg, Coosje van Bruggen, David Rabinowitch, John Wesley, and most importantly, Donald Judd. Photos weren't allowed on our tour, but here's what we managed to capture:

 The people were nice, but the cats were snooty.

We explored more of Marfa and found this building that consisted only of a square room with square chairs around a square table. For more information on why this matters, refer to the Donald Judd post from earlier this semester.

Lunch at the food truck:

Afterwards, the flock migrated to the Prada Marfa installation:

We ended the night by attempting to see the famous Marfa Lights. Sadly, all we saw was a beautiful sunset.
