Marfa is a place where any stress you might have immediately melts away. The air is so warm and dry in this incredible little town is in the middle of the western Texas desert. At night, the sky is filled with stars. Donald Judd basically “put Marfa on the map” when he moved there to build his Chinati Foundation (with backing from the Dia Foundation). There you can see Donald Judd’s 100 aluminum boxes, John Chamberlain’s steel sculptures from old cars, as well as other artists from that period.
We stayed in a beautifully renovated vintage trailer at this fantastic campground called El Cosmico.
PS – on the way there, we passed the “Prada Marfa” art installation. Fantastic!
