Konstmuseet Chinati i Marfa, Texas, visade en specialutställning av Olle Baertling från oktober 2008 till maj 2009. Baertlings konst är välkänd i Europa, men i USA är han nästa okänd, trots att Baertling hade en rad utställningar där under 1960- och 1970-talen. (Donald Judd recenserade Baertlings utställning i Columbia universitetet 1964 och samlade senare på hans serigrafier.) Utställningen i Chinati, som innehöll 30 målningar och en skulptur, omfattade Baertlings konstnärliga karriär, från början av 1950-talet till 1980. Det var hans första soloutställning i USA på mer än 40 år.
