Unveiling Chicano Art and Culture: A Preview to The Cheech – En Diálogo Series

Be a sponsor

Dear Friend,

Chicano art is a movement that transcends worlds, cultures, and experiences. We have been given a once in a lifetime opportunity to have a permanent home for Cheech Marin’s 700-piece collection of Chicano art. We are excited to say that The Cheech Marin Center for Chicano Art and Culture of the Riverside Art Museum, will be the world-wide home for Chicano art and culture in Riverside, California. “The Cheech” will provide a place for all to see, study, and discuss the various intersections of Chicano art.

This year, Unidos will launch a series of virtual conversations, “diálogos” in place of our planned second gala, to continue to raise funds for “The Cheech”. The En Diálogo Series will be held monthly from October 2020 through January 2021. The diálogos will highlight and celebrate a handful of our most talented Chicano artists across music, film, art sculpture and paintings, writing, acting, tattoo art, photography and more!. We will also be launching a silent auction in January 2021. All of the funds raised will go towards The Cheech Marin Center for Chicano Art and Culture!

We hope you will join us for one or ALL of these extraordinary conversations!
