It's harder to get to Marfa, Texas than Paris, France from New York City. Tucked away in the middle of West Texas desert this little gem has kept it's charm. A mélange of Americana with the cool, hip groove of modern art. It's been over 30 years since Donald Judd placed this sleepy town on the international art map, yet somehow it's managed to keep up with its own beat. The pace of the town lags our techno world pulse. Locals manage without cell phone and patience is required for a slice of pizza-a two hour stamina. Within the couple of blocks, a well known New York chef caters to the sophisticated palettes at the trendy restaurant while local restaurateur fire up unique Tex-Mex wraps and middle eastern bites at the famous Food Shark truck. Neither one can be considered a quick option. The great Texas vistas present an unusual backdrop for modern art. Whether it's this unexpected combination of landscape and art or the caliber of contemporary artists represented, Chianti foundation and the Judd Foundation are instrumental for any art lover as a travel destination.
