Currently Mexic-Arte Museum in Austin, Texas is showing artwork from the collection of the late Juan Sandoval -- Mexico, the Border and Beyond: Selection from the Juan Antonio Sandoval Jr Collection.  The exhibition is up currently -- December 19, 2020 -- August 22, 2021.

Many of the Desert Triangle prints and artists are featured in this exhibition, as seen in the "virtual exhibition":

Dr Juan Antonio Sandoval Jr passed away on January 3, 2021, after the exhibition opened. He donated his print collection to Mexic-Arte, which is the basis for this exhibition. Thank you Juan Sandoval and Mexic-Arte!

Dr Gilberto Cardenas gave a Zoom presentation of his art collection  on April 3, 2021, as part of the events around the current Dr Juan Sandoval collection:

Juan Sandoval (1946 - 2021)

 Juan Sandoval passed away on January 3rd, 2021.  Juan Sandoval amassed an important collection of Chicano art and prints, including the "Desert Triangle Print Carpeta."

Juan Sandoval was a big supporter and collector of some of the El Paso Desert Triangle artists, and even collected the Desert Triangle portfolio:

We dedicated the Ambos Lados International Print Exchange catalog to Juan Sandoval, as he spent a lot of time in Oaxaca collecting those artists as well.  The Ambos Lados International Print Exchange was organized by Horned Toad Prints from El Paso, and Taller Grafica Libre of Oaxaca.


Juan Sandoval recently left his art collection to Mexic-Arte Museum in Austin, Texas.  Mexic-Arte honored him last year with the "Lifetime Achievement Award in Visual Arts."

Currently Mexic-Arte is showing Juan's collection in an exhibition called "Mexico, the Border and Beyond: Selections from the Juan Antonio Sandoval Jr. Collection."

Cristina Cardenas' print from the Desert Triangle is showing currently at Mexic-Arte exhibit of the Juan Sandoval collection:

Also Los Dos' print is currently showing at the Mexic-Arte Museum as part of Juan Sandoval's collection.  Pavel Acevedo sent me the two photos below, because his work (not the Desert Triangle print) is also in the Juan Sandoval exhibition:
