Playboy Sparks A Debate Between Art, Advertising In West Texas

The debate continues about the Playboy Marfa art installation in Marfa. Last month, Playboy Enterprises installed a 20 ft logo along with a car perched on a slanted concrete block similar to a Donald Judd sculpture west of Highway 90. Since then, the community reacted, the media was intrigued and TxDOT declared the installation did not have the proper permit after a resident complained and said it has to come down.

Mónica Ortiz Uribe, from Fronteras The Changing America Desk, reports more on this issue.
