made for marfa

February 27th, 2012 | Posted by Hello Love in Style

I have to be honest here. This is going to come as a shock but I have NEVER been to Marfa. It’s a hole in my Texas Travel education and honestly my heart aches a little every time I think about it. I’m going. This year. I’m an artist and a Texan through and through (we’re quite proud). I envision Marfa as the perfect place to soak up true wonderful artful peace (almost like Santa Fe) in a beautiful Texas setting under the stars – I was made to go to Marfa. And I haven’t been. Shameful. That said, in the spirit of Marfa week I’m filling you in on my ideal Marfa vacay. Lucky for me almost every friend I have HAS been there so I feel like I’ve got a pretty good handle on the scoop but always open for suggestions!

See the info after the jump. Marfa 2012. You heard it here first.

    • El Cosmico – Liz Lambert’s trailer, tepee, yurt oasis. I love ANYTHING Liz Lambert touches so I would have to stay here at least one night.
    • Cibolo Creek Ranch – I am a sucker for a little luxury and for years I’ve been hearing about Cibolo Creek. It sits about 30 minutes South of Marfa. We’ll definitely soak up a little peace and quiet there for a night or two.





    • Relax, soak up the art, the open sky, look at some art, talk about art and more art, definitely the Chinati and Prada Marfa in Valentine Texas, hopefully some live low key music and can’t miss the mystery lights

      Will – Your photos are aollsuteby amazing. You really do have a great eye for things, and it is obvious in every picture that I have seen. There’s no doubt in my mind that these couples are eternally grateful for the memories they will have framed forever. Good work Whitney! Very impressed.

    Hi Theresa. My name is Matt Jacobs. I just graduated from KCAI this past May. Your name poeppd up because I heard you were an intern at the Chinati Foundation and also a KCAI Alum. I’ll be an intern there starting in February of next year. I’d love to hear how your experience is going so far, and also how living in Marfa is. Feel free to email me, or just write me back. I’ve been following your blog for a while too. You’re doing a really great job chronicling what’s happening out there. I’m getting more and more excited to come down next year. Keep up the good work!~Matt
