Cheech Marin is as passionate about sharing Chicana and Chicano art as he is about creating his collection.
Following the huge success of an initial exhibition of works on paper, Papel Chicano Dos was organized as a traveling exhibition to bring the artworks of established and emerging Chicana/o artists to communities far and wide before it finds its home at The Cheech Marin Center for Chicano Art and Culture, a new institution in California devoted to the presentation of the collection.
Featured artists are Carlos Almaraz, Charles “Chaz” Bojórquez, Pablo Andres Cristi, Carlos Donjuán, Gaspar Enríquez, Sonya Fe, Emmanuel Galvez, Diane Gamboa, Margaret García, Roberto Gil de Montes, CiCi Segura González, Raúl Guerrero, Roberto Gutiérrez, Adán Hernández, Benito Huerta, Leo Limón, Gilbert “Magu” Luján, César A. Martínez, Glugio “Gronk” Nicondra, Wenceslao Quiroz, Frank Romero, Sonia Romero, Ricardo Ruiz, John Valadez, and Vincent Valdez.
On view previously at eight other museums nationwide, the FAC will be the exhibition’s ninth and final venue before the works return to their new home at The Cheech. The exhibition and its national tour are organized and managed by Melissa Richardson Banks of CauseConnect.
