//www.chinati.org/english2/collection/judd_concrete.htm Do you have any art/design meccas that have been calling your name for awhile?  Paris?  Venice? The Spoleto Festival?  Brooklyn?  A feature on a house in Marfa, Texas I saw recently reminded me that I want to go there.  Of course there is all that Judd all over the place, with its headquarters at the Chianti Foundation Museum of Contemporary Art .  Judd describes the mission of this place:

Most art is fragile and some should be placed and never moved again. Somewhere a portion of contemporary art has to exist as an example of what the art and its context were meant to be. Somewhere, just as the platinum­iridium meter guarantees the tape measure, a strict measure must exist for the art of this time and place.
