Achievement in Art Gala: The Chicano Art Collection of Cheech Marin


Cheech Marin is an actor, director, comedian, author, and a passionate art collector. His collection of Chicano Art is one of the finest in the United States. For more than fifteen years, Cheech's collection has been curated into exhibitions that have traveled extensively around the country ensuring that Chicano Art has its place alongside all other schools of American Art. In Cheech's words, "Chicano Art is American Art." Included in this exhibition are Chicanitas: Small Paintings from the Cheech Marin Collection as well as additional larger-scale works from his collection.
