This town was really cool. Really neat south west architecture, tons of arts, and it was so tiny.
We stopped here at the suggestion of our friend Will and it was a good stop. The art was drawn to this tiny town in Western Texas when a Minimalist artist moved here in the 70's and got a grant to buy up an old decommissioned army base and turn it into permanent installations. And then about 10 years ago, a whole wave of big liberal city-type artist folk moved down and instantly quadrupled the property value. Emma and I don't like minimalism, but went on the tour anyway. We also ate some really good lunch there and stumbled across something we were searching for before our trip, the fake Prada store in the middle of Texas.
