Marfa, Texas

Once a sleepy West Texas town, Marfa, Texas became the unlikely focus of the art world when renowned Minimalist artist Donald Judd moved his home and studio there in the early 1970s to escape the art scene in New York City. On his compound there are a total of 15 private living and working spaces including studios installed with artwork by Judd and others. Since Judd's move, this town has been transformed into an art-world tourist destination.
