Marfa, Texas
September 14-17, 2016

Join me in Marfa, an art oasis in West Texas located between the Davis Mountains and Big Bend National Park. Put on the map back in the 1970s when artist Donald Judd moved there in search of “space” to explore his minimalist art, it has been drawing bohemians and the creative type ever since. This tiny town full of scrub cactus, tumbleweeds, and vacant roads surrounded by sky and cotton candy clouds is the perfect backdrop for our adventure. This autumn retreat for yogis, outdoor enthusiasts, and photographers offers a chance to check out Marfa’s treasures before winter arrives.
