She has written and received over $30 million in grant funds from foundation, corporate, government and individual donors for her many clients nationwide.
On February 20, 2016 Vallejo’s “Make ‘Em All Mexican; Brown Oscars” series was featured on the cover of the Los Angeles Times Calendar Section in an article entitled “A different picture: Linda Vallejo’s series imagines an all-Latino awards lineup” written by Carolina A Martinez. The project was a collaboration with Chon Noriega and the UCLA Chicano Studies Research Center. Accompanying articles were published by ARTnews, Fusion.com, Remezcla.com, UCLA Bruin, and an interview by KPCC Radio. Vallejo’s “MEAM: Super Hombre II” is included in “My Hero: Contemporary Art & Supreme Action,” in a traveling exhibit initiated by The Bedford Gallery in Walnut Creek, CA opening in January 2016 and traveling to nine national locations through December 2018.
Vallejo is featured in “Hablamos Juntos: Together We Speak: Contemporary Latino/a Broadsides,” a project of El Museo Eduardo Carrillo, in Lectura Books “Latino Family Literacy Project” with an illustration and short essay entitled “When Travel Is a Family Affair,” and on the cover of “Women in Culture: An Intersectional Anthology for Gender and Women’s Studies” published by Wiley Blackwell, New York. Vallejo will serve as co-curator with Betty Ann Brown for the Self Help Graphics’ Getty Foundation Initiative PST: LA/LA exhibition and education program entitled “El Dia de Los Muertos: Past, Present, and Future” to open in Los Angeles in September 2017.
