Prada Marfa is site specific, permanent land art project. The work is located on the outskirts of Valentine, Texas near Marfa on desolate ranching land with no other visible trace of civilization.
From a distance the artwork appears to be a large minimalist sculpture. As one gets closer the building resembles a Prada boutique where a display of Fall 2005 high-heel Prada shoes and bags can be seen through the storefront windows.
Yet, one cannot open the door, it is a sealed time capsule and will never function as a place of commerce.
