Laumeier Sculpture Park in Saint Louis, Missouri, has successfully completed a $200,000 conservation project for Donald Judd’s “Untitled” (1984). The two-year project was funded by a $100,000 Art Works grant from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), with a 1:1 match by Laumeier. According to the NEA’s website, Art Works grants are reserved for projects that “are likely to prove transformative with the potential for meaningful change, whether in the development or enhancement of new or existing art forms, new approaches to the creation or presentation of art, or new ways of engaging the public with art; are distinctive, offering fresh insights and new value for their fields and/or the public through unconventional solutions; and have the potential to be shared and/or emulated, or are likely to lead to other advances in the field.”

Judd, one of the most significant American artists of the post-war period, is often regarded as a Minimalist -- a classification he denounced based on its generality.
