Prada Marfa Sunrise

Prada Marfa Sunrise - This images captures the Prada Marfa exibit at sunrise. We have been here many times so this time we decided to come at sunrise instead of sunset. We got some nice soft pink skies at this time of day. This art project was place in a very unlikely place with vast desert landscape behind placed right along the road with some mountains in the far distance. Why it has been called Marfa Prada since it actually located in Valentine Texas, I guess that they just pick the biggest town nearby which is Marfa Texas also the county seat for the area. The permanet exhibit was created by two artist Elmgreen and Dragset in October 2005 to resemble an actual Prada store. The two refer to their work as pop architectual land art with a bit of humor. They built this structure about 24 miles outside of Marfa in a city called Valentine Texas population around 200. To make it more interesting they found the least likely place to find a store like this and stuck in in far west texas. They added only right shoes and the purses have no bottoms. The exhibit has been vandalize several times now I guess people in this area like prada more than they knew. I am not sure what they were saying or not saying about their art. Maybe they were making fun of consumerism, but you would have to ask the artist. As a photographer it great fun to shoot such a unique image. After the latest vandalism they have install cameras and the purses have GPS devices inside that detect movement so making it more difficult to shop there in the future. Also around the store people have lefts their locks and other items of interest on the fence that surrounds the area and you will see cars all line up and down the road around sunset most weekends. Even though it been around since 2005 people still show up by the car loads to see this Prada Marfa exibit on a daily basis. This iconic art project has become a landmark for people to visit when in the area around Marfa. Prada Marfa 2023. Photo © copyright by Bee Creek Photography - Tod Grubbs / Cynthia Hestand.
