CHICANITAS: SMALL PAINTINGS FROM THE CHEECH MARIN COLLECTION

20131220-091851.jpg

Perhaps best known for his work as an actor, director, and half of the comedy duo Cheech and Chong, Cheech Marin has collected Chicano art for the last 25 years. During this time he has built a renowned collection and organized exhibitions that have traveled across the United States. MCASD visitors might remember Chicano Visions: American Painters on the Verge, an exhibition featuring works from Marin’s collection that traveled to the Museum in 2004. Chicanitas: Small Paintings from the Cheech Marin Collection presents works by established figures such as John Valadez, Leo Limón, Patssi Valdez and Yolanda Gonzalez, as well as younger emerging artists such as Jari “Werc” Álvarez, Ana Teresa Fernández, and Sonia Romero. Each of the works in the exhibition takes the format of approximately 16 inches square or smaller and depicts subjects of a personal nature—familiar landscapes, notions of cultural heritage, familial relationships, and social community. In Chicanitas Marin has drawn together a rich variety of works that express the complex texture of Chicano experience.
