NPR Critiques Marfa “Chinazi” Phenomenon

Noting the “almost half dozen features” published in the NY Times about Marfa in the past three years, NPR‘s Neda Ulaby joins the scrum, outlining the tiny town’s makeover as an art mecca. Always even-handed, the piece contrasts the undeniable economic benefits to the local economy with muted naysaying from old-time townies and a “What Would Judd Say?” opinion from Tim Johnson of the Marfa Book Co.
