    Room Views Conversation Series: The Blue Room - Art in Context, Then and Now

    The Chinati Foundation was founded by artist Donald Judd with a very specific mission as a permanent exhibition space and residency center. Today, sixteen years after Judd’s death, issues stemming from the founder’s ideas, present-day reality, conservation, and family intertwine, making for an interesting case study of personal museums and their legacies. A wine reception will follow around the courtyard.

    Part of Room Views: A Series of Conversations About the Gardner Museum:
    This season's Room Views conversations focus on the idea of The Personal Museum. Isabella Gardner created one of the first personal museums in the United States, establishing a model for the intersection of art and personality that continues to influence collectors and artists today. This series will explore several different examples of the personal museum, from strong-minded collectors like Gardner and Albert Barnes to museums created by contemporary artists. How has the personal museum shaped our view of museums in general, and what we can experience there?
