Have you heard of Whatville in Angel Fire, New Mexico? It’s a brand new 10-acre art installation by Ray Renfroe. Admission to Whatville will be free. It was made by the artist mostly to make people happy. He’s hoping it will also drive visitors to Angel Fire to add to the economy. Whatville features colorful wooden structures and many eclectic objects in the setting of an imaginary “Shadow National Forest.” Many of the things you’ll find in Whatville are made from sticks the artist found in the Valley of the Utes. Some of the items are things he’s collected over the years like antlers, a bathtub, old trucks and a vintage typewriter.
Old structures that were on the land when he bought it still stand, like a small house and an old barn. Renfroe envisions an area of Whatville with an open air market for vendors and local commerce and entertainment. He plans to bring in food trucks and leave space for tiny home owners. Angel Fire’s Chamber of Commerce says that Whatville really could be a positive addition to the local art scene and the community as a while. Meanwhile, Mayor Barbara Cottam also praised Whatville for its eclectic art exhibit.
