Sigrid Kirk from Arts Co went for an extraordinary pilgrimage to Marfa and Dallas.
The trip included the famed Prada Marfa, which is a 20-minute drive from the town. Artists Elmgren and Dragset designed a delightfully ironic replica of a Prada store, a permanent sculpture in the middle of sagebrush and dirt.
The Warehouse, a gallery and storage space co-acquired by the Rachofskys and fellow collectors Amy and Vernon Faulconer. In approximately 18,000 feet of exhibition space the Warehouse features highlights from their private art collections and dazzles visitors with works by Robert Ryman, Agnes Martin, Marlene Dumas, and Matthew Barney.
The Nasher Sculpture Center, one of the few institutions devoted solely to sculpture. Conceived by Patsy and Raymond Nasher, their collection is housed in a Renzo Piano designed building with a sculpture garden in the back by landscape architect Peter Walker.
The Chinati Foundation, a contemporary museum which highlights Donald Judd and other minimal artists such as Dan Flavin, Ronni Horn, and Carl Andrea among others.
The Old National Bank Marfa which houses Donald Judd’s furniture collection, and the Modern Art Museum of Forth Worth.
