While newcomers sometimes see it as another Santa Fe, long-time residents often take a bemused, even disapproving attitude toward the changes that Marfa has undergone since artist Donald Judd came to town in the 1970s and began creating spaces for his own and other artists’ work. The cube is a direct reference to Donald Judd and carefully encased in each of its planes are ethereal photographs of the forlorn town.
