Founded more than thirty years ago by artist Donald Judd, the museum includes two permanent installations of his works, 100 works in mill aluminum and 15 outdoor works in concrete.
The museum is designed to preserve and exhibit permanent large-scale installations by a limited number of artists whose work emphasizes a link with the surrounding landscape.
Located on 340 acres of a former fort, the museum's exhibition buildings are rehabilitated artillery sheds and army barracks. In addition to the permanent installations, temporary exhibitions featuring modern and contemporary art of diverse media are hosted.
