LUBBOCK, TX (PRESS RELEASE) -- Chichi Marin is best known as one half of the hilariously irreverent duo of Cheech and Chong. While primarily known as an actor, a director, and a performer, Marin has developed what is arguably the finest private collection of Chicano art. In his multi-media presentation Chicano Art: Perspectives of an Art Advocate, Cheech Marin discusses the status of Chicano art in the U.S. today and his role as an art advocate of this school of American art.
In conjunction with the Presidential Lecture and Performance Series and Mr. Marin’s visit, TTU Landmark Gallery (located in the School of Art Building, 18th & Flint) will be mounting the exhibition Chicanitas: Small Paintings from the Cheech Marin Collection, on display from October 3 through December 14.
