Marfa Dialogues



The City of Marfa has officially ordered a shelter in place mandate. At this time all hotels, short-term rentals and non-essential businesses are currently closed. In accordance Ballroom Marfa will remain temporarily closed to the public until further notice. This includes our gallery spaces as well as our public installation, Haroon Mirza’s stone circle. We ask that visitors to Elmgreen & Dragset’s Prada Marfa exercise an abundance of caution and practice social distancing. If you can avoid visiting at this time we recommend doing so. Please take care and we look forward to welcoming you in the future!
