On Saturday the Vincent Price Art Museum held a closing program and celebration for the exhibition “Teddy Sandoval and the Butch Gardens School of Art.” The show travels next to the Williams College Museum of Art in Williamstown, Massachusetts where it will be on display from July 19 to Dec. 15.

Teddy Sandoval and the Butch Gardens School of Art is the first museum retrospective dedicated to the inventive though overlooked artist Teddy Sandoval (1949–1995). A central figure in Los Angeles’s queer and Chicanx artistic circles, Sandoval was an active participant in both U.S. and international avant-garde movements. For twenty-five years, he produced subversive, yet playful artworks that explored the codes of gender and sexuality and continuously mined archetypes of masculinity in his work through his signature icon of a faceless man, often sporting a mustache.
