Target Marathon (a guerrilla art installation)


So remember the other day when I posted a non-traditional view of the well-know Prada Marfa art installation?

This piece, known as Target Marathon, showed up one day this past January, and so far no one has claimed responsibility for it. I believe it is sort of an artistic middle finger thrown in the direction of Prada Marfa, which is about 80 miles away.

  1. I may not know much about art, but I do know something about middle fingers. And it’s amusing to me to think that this could be one.


  2. Retail wars in the wild west! Now that Amazon has gone brick-and-mortar, I suspect they’ll ride into town soon enough, with their drones like flying monkeys. You do get cyclones, don’t you? Liquidation sales, all around…sorry, that “spiraled” out of control way too quickly!


  3. This would make an excellent middle finger for the thousands of Canadians who lost their jobs after Target’s ill considered failure of an arrogant know-it-all expansion into Canada.
