Arts and Archaeology: Marfa and West Texas

A Study Tour

Thursday through Sunday April 18 - 21 | Limited enrollment

We will tour the new galleries, theater, bookstore and various artists' studios housed in and near the many renovated historic buildings of Marfa's Main Street. Marianne Stockebrand, director of the Chinati Foundation, will guide us through the home and the indoor and outdoor installations of its founder, the Minimalist artist Donald Judd, and through the foundation's permanent collection of artists such as John Chamberlain, Roni Horn, Carl Andre, Richard Long, and Dan Flavin. With anthropologist Robert Mallouf, director of the Center for Big Bend Studies in Alpine, Texas, we will visit three prehistoric and archaeologically-rich sites between Presidio and Redford, Texas, near the Mexican border. We will spend two nights in Fort Davis, with an optional guided tour of the fort, and a third night at Cibolo Creek Ranch.
