Thank you to this year’s participating organizations and individuals who volunteered their time toward making the Camp happen, and the biggest thank you to all the students and families who joined us!
Marfa is often described as quiet. In comparison to bigger cities, it is quiet! BUT! When you allow yourself to sit in true silence here, or anywhere, you realize the many noises that fill this vast space. Listening closely in Marfa, you might hear the grasslands rustling in the wind, cattle mooing on the ranch, music trickling out of car windows, or the call of the White Winged Dove. One of Michael's favorite places to sit and listen is Donald Judd's unfinished concrete buildings that sit along the edge of Chinati's campus. Michael enjoys the isolation of this spot where he can listen without distraction to sounds from the natural world. Today, we are going to spend dedicated time listening to sounds we hear around us and describing them in our process journals.

Turn the volume UP to hear this week's first Sound of the Day! Lil' peeps, not the kind you eat though! The sound you are hearing is the wondrous sound of two week old chicks and they have much to say. My family and I love to sit and listen to their conversations. Stick your head out into the world, listen for the sound of another living being. Can you imagine what they are saying? Write or draw about this in your process journal! I can't wait to see what you hear. — Michael #chinatiSSU #chinatiedu #chinatifoundation #museumfromhome
