Trickle down in Marfa

Marfa artists Nick Terry and Maryam Amiryani have organized the Dersu Collective to use art money to improve Marfa’s neighborhood amenities. Named for the couple’s malamute, the non-exclusive group includes artists Valerie Arber, Jennifer Lane, Lorna Leedy, Michael Roch, and Sam Schonzeit. The collective’s first project will be a playing field around Spring and First streets, funded by a one-night art benefit held Saturday at the Marfa Book Co. Terry is supplying the land; money raised will clear debris, put in gates, and buy some playing equipment.
