The famous Prada Marfa exhibit had been on my Texas Adventure Bucket list. You’ve seen the iconic photos, artwork and high fashion magazine spreads. The Prada Marfa installation in the middle of the West Texas desert is like a myth, far and unattainable. While we were staying in Marfa, mostly relaxing with the relaxed vibes and practically paused pace of the entire town, I was pretty excited to get the chance to visit the spot and take some great photos. I couldn’t believe that my husband would actually be down for a cute couples shot, but I just went for it, set up the tripod with the timer and got such a great photo, that we’re gonna blow it up and get it framed for our Master Bedroom! Check out the photos and see for yourself. The 6 hour drive from San Antonio, totally worth it!
Prada Marfa is a permanently installed sculpture by artists Elmgreen and Dragset, situated 1.4 miles (2.3 km) northwest of Valentine, Texas, just off U.S. Highway 90 (US 90), and about 26 miles (42 km) northwest of the city of Marfa. The installation was inaugurated on October 1, 2005. The artists called the work a “pop architectural land art project”. The installation is just another demonstration of the highly artistic community established in the area. People from all over the world, including major celebrities, have taken photos in front of the structure. It’s pretty damn cool that I finally got to visit and take my very iconic shot there, too!
