Opening Reception

Description: Opening Reception, 3-6pm as Ballroom Marfa launches a new show - Paul Villinski's Emergency Response Studio - a solar-powered, mobile artist's studio repurposed from a salvaged FEMA-style trailer. Emergency Response Studio was conceived by Villinski after visiting Post-Katrina New Orleans, a scene he felt was still comparable to a war-torn region in 2006. The trailer itself has been completely transfigured from a "toxic tin-can" of a FEMA trailer into a sustainably-built, off the grid living and work space. Solar powered and constructed with green materials - including recycled denim insulation, zero-VOC paints, bamboo cabinetry, compact fluorescent lighting, reclaimed wood and floor tiles made from linseed oil - the Emergency Response Studio is a prototype for self-sufficient, mobile housing with a minimized carbon footprint.
