The Adventures of Reba

Marfa, TX

This is our second visit to Marfa, Texas, one of the few places we’ve returned to (so far) on our travels. Formerly an Army base, it’s now mostly known because the artist Donald Judd purchased several properties here a few years before his death, and his two foundations continue to operate from here in an effort to maintain his legacy. We were able to take tours of his home and studios, and Beau visited the Chinati Foundation museum too. There’s several cute shops and galleries and delicious restaurants. There’s a Prada store art installation in the middle of nowhere. It’s hard to sum up Marfa: Part small town tourism, part hipster millennial hang out, part quirky artist community? Yes and no. We keep saying “Next time…” and “When we come back…” so, I imagine there will be a part 3 someday. See you then, Marfa!
