STATE OF THE ARTS: Desert Triangle Print Carpeta

Karl Whitaker, artist and “art agitator” commissioned 30 artists from Tucson, El Paso/Las Cruces and Albuquerque to make large prints, without a set theme.  The project is called the Desert Triangle Print Carpeta and it will be on exhibit at the El Paso Museum of Art from January 31st through May 22nd, 2016. 

The main object of this carpeta (or print collection) is to exhibit, both in and outside the Southwest, and remind the world that there is art in the desert. Artists Karl Whitaker and Manuel Guerra and Dr. Patrick Shaw Cable from the El Paso Museum of Art discuss this project.
