Prada Marfa Controversy-TxDot’s Stupidest Move Ever?

This article in the New York Times lines out the problem better than I can, but essentially the popular  Elmgeen and Dragset art installation Prada Marfa just outside the town of Marfa has apparently been declared an illegal advertisement rather than a work of art and therefore might need to be removed. The absurdity of this should be immediately apparent to anyone with a functioning brain cell and even a casual acqaintance with art. There is a facebook page (Save Prada Marfa) and hopefully this will help encourage involved bureaucracies to  take a fresh look at the situation.-david sokolec
