About This Event

Collectors Forum, Marfa, Texas—at the far edge of art
Tuesday, Dec. 1, 2020 | 5:30 pm | Via Zoom Webinar

Marfa, Texas is not in the middle of nowhere.  It’s at the far edge of nowhere, and that is its magic. 
Join us to learn about Marfa’s exciting history, from railway pit stop to military base to international art hub. Marfa was a sleepy town with a handful of ranchers and cattle farmers when, in 1971, renowned minimalist artist Donald Judd moved there from New York City. Judd’s transformation of a decommissioned army base and various buildings in town into art spaces created a cultural mecca for contemporary artists. Visits to two artist studios and to favorite galleries will round out this virtual tour to Marfa with Clare Kunny and Nancy Smith from Art Muse LA.
