For over twenty years, Marfa Live Arts has brought arts and arts education to our area of Far West Texas.

Marfa Live Arts is dedicated to nurturing local artists, sharing our region’s stories and finding new ways to reach and engage our diverse audiences. Over this past year, Marfa Live Arts instructed the popular 12th Annual Playwriting Program at Marfa High School with Playwright Raul Garza and taught Mindfulness Theater Camp in partnership with MISD Summer Shake Up. During the Marfa Lights Festival, we staged My HEB an original play by  Raul Garza. This fall,  Currently, we are preparing to teach the Eighth Annual Playwriting Preparatory course at Marfa Junior High and will produce the Eighth Annual Winter Showcase Theater with monologues written by students brought to life on stage by actors. We invite you to join us for this coming year's programs.
Marfa Live Arts has created this community of artists where people can tap into their thoughts and feelings, whether it’s fears or dreams. And they realize they have an audience and they can externalize all of those ideas that they have. They’re inspired to write and to perform. There are fewer things that are as powerful for them to carry them through their life. I would say Marfa Live Arts fills a huge space that is definitely needed and appreciated.  — Artist, Teacher & Art Patron
