Conceptual Art or Gag Gift? You Decide!

Ipad in Fort Davis

About twenty miles north of Marfa lies the small, sleepy town of Fort Davis. With a population of 1,201, the town offers a handful of restaurants, activities, and shops, some of which are located in the Davis Emporium, an old motel that has been converted into a mini mall. One of the stores in the strip, “Possibilities,” had a wall of objects that are both humorous and conceptual — somewhat echoing the sentiment of Bill’s Junk in Houston. The packages made us think — is the person that made them a brilliant artist, or are they just trying to make a quick buck? Or both? See some of the gags below.
