California-based sculptor Robert Irwin has spent 14 years planning an installation for the Chinati Foundation in Marfa, and construction for the project is set to begin this summer. This follows a grant for $750,000 from the Lannan Foundation to pair with Chinati’s campaign which raised $3.7 million last year. The budget for the Robert Irwin Project currently sits at $5 million.
The installation will continue Irwin’s exploration of light and shadow and will be housed within an old army hospital and its courtyard. Read more about it here.
