One of the Most Unusual, Unique, and Remote Contemporary Art Destinations in the United States

Visit the number-one "wishlist" art destination in the United States: the remote, fascinating town of Marfa, Texas. Popular with, among others, Beyoncé and, Matthew McConaughey, and Hollywood film scouts (it's where Giant and There Will Be Blood were filmed) it will leave you and your impression of contemporary art changed forever. The centerpiece of this pilgrimage is the Chinati Foundation. This former army base was converted by Donald Judd, one of the most influential American postwar artists, into a permanent sanctuary for his own work as well as the large-scale, experiential work of artists he was friends with and admired (among them Dan Flavin, Robert Irwin, Carl Andre, and Roni Horn.)

Also included are visits to other significant Marfa sites, such as Judd's home and studio, Elmgreen and Dragset's Prada Marfa, and Ballroom Marfa.

Our Marfa Jaunt is priced at $4,700 per person and includes all transportation, lodging, and meals during your trip. Our trips do not include flights to or from your destination.
