In the early 1970s, Donald Judd began to retreat from the New York art world, eventually transplanting himself, his family, his studio, his library, and his work to a vast estate in Marfa, Texas, where he sought to live the same minimal aesthetic he created in his sculptures. The Chinati Foundation, located on grounds formerly occupied by a military fort and prisoner-of-war camp, has become a three-dimensional manifesto of Minimalism and an art-world pilgrimage site. Artist and University of Minnesota art professor Thomas Rose discusses Judd's work and talks about his own experiences visiting the Judd estate.
