The Cheech Marin Center for Chicano Art & Culture

“The Cheech Marin Center for Chicano Art & Culture of the Riverside Art Museum is set to open on May 8, 2022”, according to The Cheech Marin Center. It will be located in Riverside’s downtown historic core adjacent to The Mission Inn Hotel & Spa in the cultural hub of Inland Southern California.

Riverside Art Museum will host a new art center around Chicano Art. It will be dedicated to Cheech Marin, an art collector of Chicano Art. The Art Museum Riverside hosted “Papel Chicano Dos: Works on Paper,” an exhibition of 65 pieces brought by Cheech Marin that 1400 people attended.

We covered this in our Weekly Wire Roundup

Marin’s success with this art exhibition enticed the Riverside Art Museum and city administration to invite him to permanently have a place in the museum for his Chicanx art.

The museum is set to open in May 2022. Again, the Riverside community took the lead and successfully hosted the new art center for promoting Chicano Art.
