The Long Way to Halifax – Marfa Texas

Marfa originated as a railroad water stop in the 1880’s and has since experienced both growth and reduction until the early 1970’s when artist Donald Judd moved to Marfa to pursue his minimalist art. The town is now a cultural centre for contemporary artists featuring many galleries and events. Unfortunately, the timing of our arrival in Marfa put us there on a Sunday afternoon, thus the town was very quiet with few galleries open, but it was still a pleasure to walk through this transformed desert arts mecca.
