Prada Marfa is a permanently installed sculpture by artists Elmgreen and Dragset, not in nearby Marfa, Texas, but near the town of Valentine. The installation was inaugurated on October 1, 2005. The artists called the work a "pop architectural land art project." The sculpture, completed with the assistance of American architects Ronald Rael and Virginia San Fratello, cost $80,000 and was intended to never be repaired, so that it might slowly degrade back into the natural landscape. This plan was dashed when, three days after the sculpture was completed, vandals graffiti-ed the exterior and broke into the building, stealing handbags and shoes.
