Marfa Dialogues

The Synergetic Omni-Solution Student Visits

Marfa Studio of the Arts

May 2011


In May 2011, we were delighted to welcome students from the Marfa Studio of Arts to Alyce Santoro’s exhibition, The Synergetic Omni-Solution, at the Masonic Lodge. Santoro led students around the space, explaining her projects, and discussing how they relate to science, art, and the intersection of the two.

Marfa Studio of Arts (MSA) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit arts organization located in the small, West Texas town of Marfa, situated 60 miles from the U.S./Mexico border. MSA was initially formed by artist Malinda Beeman in 1999 as a unifier, using the language of art to bring disparate segments of the local population together. Today, MSA is recognized for providing high quality visual arts programming for local children and youth through its special focus program, Studio in the Elementary School (SITES.)

    Many thanks to Marfa Studio of Arts and teachers Alexsandra Anello, Callie Meeks, and Sam Schonzeit.
