Marfa Public Radio

The wildfires in Far West Texas continue and have consumed over 275,000 acres, destroyed dozens of homes, killed livestock and wildlife, and jeopardized the livelihoods of countless ranchers and residents. This past week, Hotel San Jose held the incredible West Texas Wildfire Relief Benefit with live music performances by Patty Griffin, Shawn Colvin, Amy Cook and Erika Wennerstrom of Heartless Bastards. With the awesome community here in Austin, Hotel San Jose raised $37,000 in aid for the West Texas Wildfires.

As you know, Marfa holds a special place in our hearts, and from this affection we treasure our pro-bono work with Marfa Public Radio on special projects. After the jump are two designs we proudly created for MPR’s 2010 and 2011 t-shirts.

Marfa Public Radio serves a critical role in the spread of emergency information in the Far West Texas Region and has acted as an invaluable resource during the wildfires to announce evacuations, coordinate local relief efforts and keep the community informed.
