less is judd or art + architecture = happy 2

Ever since I saw the "Donald Judd and 101 Spring Street" show at 
(which closes
this Saturday BTW.
I couldn't stop thinking about the interior.
Instead of buying a stack of new books as I tend to do when I get obsessed,
I decided to see what I could find in house, and came up with 
an old auction catalog from 2006.
It was the Judd Foundation sale at Christie's,
the proceeds of which were to go to renovations of the Spring Street space, 
which is about to happen,
and Marfa.
(What took so long?)
So, nice connection, nice pictures, and a good cause.
(The sale made the Judd foundation VERY happy, 
it grossed $21,851,040.00)
I didn't make a penny, but
Art + architecture really does make me happy!

Well, if that doesn't make you wanna take the drive to Texas,
I don't know what would!
