Los Dos and Jellyfish painted a mural on the side of the Mexic-Arte Museum in Austin, in 2018, during the Desert Triangle exhibition there.  The mural was later animated by Augment El Paso.

Federico Villalba recently co-curated a photography exhibition -- Alchemy of Light and Dark Moments -- at Galeria Cinco Puntos in El Paso.   Photos from the exhibition found their way into THE Magazine of Santa Fe, the May 2019 issue, in an article about the art of El Paso and Juarez.
