Guy Clinch - Prada, 2007
A very clever conceptual piece, this Prada store is never open but does display genuine Prada gear. It’s more on the way to Marfa on Rte. 90 South, not actually in Marfa, Texas.

A few days after Prada Marfa was officially revealed, the installation was vandalized. The building was broken into and all of its contents (six handbags and 14 right footed shoes) were stolen, and the word “Dumb” and the phrase “Dum Dum” were spray painted on the sides of the structure. The sculpture was quickly repaired, repainted, and restocked. The new Prada purses do not have bottoms and instead hide parts of a security system that alerts authorities if the bags are moved.
