Meza’s archival dissolution had profound effects on his contemporaries, among them Teddy Sandoval. This chapter examines how two disparate sites, the home and public art space, conjoin in shared networks of ceramics repatriated after his death in 1995. Focusing on the custodial efforts of his partner and estate executor, Paul Polubinsaks, the chapter utilizes an archive elicitation process to unpack Sandoval’s diverse art practices and avant-garde collaborations ranging from faux finishes, renegade street graffiti, transgender fictions of self, and mail art personae. It also discusses the posthumous completion of his Gateway to Highland Park for a commuter rail station in Los Angeles and details what became LA’s first Latinx AIDS memorial.
