Going to Texas? Check out Marfa

June 3, 2010

A friend recently visited Marfa, TX and raved about it. I thought I’d share. A unique town, and quite art-filled, there aren’t any chain stores or billboards. The Chinati Foundation was started there – which has a rather impressive collection.

It’s located in the SW corner of the state at a cross roads of sorts.

Here’s an NPR story about Donald Judd, one of the Foundation’s artists.
