The Arts in Marfa

You won’t find a gallery district in Marfa. Rather, you will find sprawling beauty that defies any single definition or interpretation.

They call it minimalism, but the implications are anything but minimal. Simple and ever expansive
all at once, Marfa’s internationally renowned artworks are inextricably linked with the breathtaking West Texas landscape.

Museums that dare you to think big, really big, as you traverse the grounds of a former military base. Socially relevant works that present the world from a different angle. Museums that pay homage to the unflagging allure of traditional Western art and mythology. With a handful of smaller galleries that are always full of surprises, you need not be daunted by their hours... “By appointment,” really means, “It’s too beautiful outside to sit inside all day, but please call and we’ll show you around."

From sparse, large-scale visual drama to a performance about making the perfect tortilla, the art here won’t tell you what to think, but it might get you thinking.
