Art Travel Program Houston & Marfa 2019



Houston & Marfa, Texas | 27-31 March 2019

 

Gaëtane Verna, Director of The Power Plant, lead the Art Travel Program to Marfa, Texas from Wednesday, 27 March – Sunday, 30 March 2019. The tiny town of Marfa was home to conceptual artist Donald Judd in the 1970s, where he established the Chinati Foundation devoted to large-scale installations that interact with the dramatic landscape. In recent years, Marfa has become a site of contemporary art pilgrimage, now home to the Judd Foundation, Ballroom Marfa and a proliferation of independent art spaces and studios.

Members broke up the journey into the West Texas desert with a day in Houston, jam packed with curator-led tours of the many world-class museums, the astonishing Menil Collection and James Turrell’s breathtaking Twilight Epiphany Skyspace.
