Lot 12: AN INSIDER’S MARFA EXPERIENCE WITH YVONNE FORCE VILLAREAL AND DOUGLAS FRIEDMAN [2 GUESTS]
Catalog Note: Set against the breathtaking high desert of West Texas, the city of Marfa has quickly evolved into a haven for minimalist art and fashion. IfOnly has curated a one-of-a-kind weekend in Marfa complete with rare access to artists, private gallery tours, and unforgettable sunsets.
Join art-world impresario Yvonne Force Villareal for an exclusive tour through Marfa’s many landmarks. As co-founder of the Art Production Fund, Yvonne is the perfect guide to introduce you to the city’s eclectic splendors. Go behind the scenes of Marfa’s distinctive art installations, including Elmgreen & Dragset’s iconic Prada Marfa sculpture, and receive private access to contemporary art galleries like the Judd Foundation and Ballroom Marfa. Then join Yvonne for drinks at the historic Brite Home, built by her husband’s ancestor (and one of the founders of Marfa) Charles Luke Brite. On your second day, globetrotting fashion photographer Douglas Friedman will take the reins. Follow Douglas to his favorite galleries, shops, and artist hangouts before ending your evening at his personal ranch for cocktails and sunset-watching.
Funds from this experience will benefit The Marfa Education Foundation. The Foundation supports and enhances the work of the Marfa Independent School District and is committed to facilitating enrichment projects and to augmenting the education of the District's students.
