Marathon, Texas: Target Marathon - Art (Gone)

Less sublime than the Prada Marfa down the road, this small, abandoned cinder block room with a Target sign is a 2016 guerrilla art installation. The property owner destroyed it in December 2020.

On the south side of US Hwy 90, 6.5 miles east of the intersection of US Hwy 67, or 16 miles west of the intersection of US Hwy 385 in Marathon.
Bulldozed Dec. 2020.

Target Marathon - Art

There's a great Yelp review written inside this Target building.

To me, the funniest part is that somebody took the trouble to bring a shopping cart out there -- and now people use it to sit in and have their pictures taken! Neat.

"You can buy anything you want when we get to Target in Marathon." Greatest vacation prank ever! Cool little art installation. Not an abandoned railway station. We interpreted it to say "get out of the stores and into nature!"
