Chicano Now: American Expressions
Actor/entertainer and prolific art collector Cheech Marin plans to weave tradition, history, music, art, religion, food, fashion and, of course, humor into a cultural reflection of the lives and rich contributions of American-born people of Mexican descent.
Several pieces of art have been commissioned for this show, allowing visitors to experience these topics through the artists’ eyes and hearts. Marin’s contention is that few cultures have contributed more to the American scene, yet rarely is the Chicano impact of society recognized, even by Mexican-Americans themselves.
