Curbed Features

The town of Marfa, Texas—200 miles from the nearest airport and 60 miles from the Mexican border—looks so quintessentially desert that it was used as a location for There Will Be Blood and No Country for Old Men. But behind some of the town's unassuming façades are the living and working spaces of Donald Judd, one of the greatest American artists of the 20th century—and the man who indirectly turned Marfa into a destination for the design world. Curbed National traces the history of how Marfa, long a hub for art lovers, came to influence design. [Curbed National]
