Full Details

When Donald Judd began his Marfa project in the early 1970s, it was regarded as an idiosyncratic quest, but today the former water stop has become a mecca for artists, art pilgrims and design aficionados who have chosen to live in concert with the austerely beautiful high desert landscape.

Helen Thompson is a nationally known writer whose areas of specialty are interior design, architecture, kitchen design and food. Thompson was a writer and editor for Texas Monthly magazine and was also the managing editor of their lifestyle magazine, DOMAIN, as well as the founding editor of the Texas Monthly website. Thompson then became the Texas city editor for Metropolitan Home magazine where she wrote about houses and produced many of the photographic features shot in Texas during the 14 years she worked for the magazine. She has also written and produced articles for Elle Decor, Architectural Digest, Dwell, House Beautiful, Martha Stewart Living, Veranda, and many other magazines. She is also the author of a number of books, including Marfa Modern, Texas Made/Texas Modern and Santa Fe Modern, all published by Monacelli.

A book signing will immediately follow the presentation.
