In July of 2015, Francisco Delgado created a linoleum cut edition in Oaxaca, at Taller Grafica Libre, for the Desert Triangle (where Toru Sugita recently created 2 intaglio prints).

While in Oaxaca Francisco also participated in the Grafica Transfronteriza Carpeta:

Francisco also painted the mural on the side of the Sagrado Corazon church in El Paso.  Below is a detail, before the mural was restored, of frequent visitor Pancho Villa eating Chico's Tacos.

Francisco Delgado showed up to the Art Avenue for the Flatbed Press book signing in El Paso, even though he created his masterpiece after the catalog came out. 3 of the artists in the book came to the opening, all with El Paso connections.
