Texas Will Allow Prada Marfa to Stay

Prada Marfa

After nearly a year of negotiations, the Texas Department of Transportation has reached an agreement with Ballroom Marfa that will save the Prada Marfa art installation by Elmgreen & Dragset by classifying it as a museum.

The nine-year old installation came under scrutiny when the Texas DoT at first determined that it was a sign, and therefore in need of a permit. Glad they resolved this dispute. Now if they could only get rid of the annoying hipsters and baby-strollers. A big thanks to our dear friend, Gabe Aguirre, for the heads-up on this one.

UPDATE: 8:10pm EST
