Join Us at the CHEECH

Come celebrate Chicano Art & Culture at The Cheech this summer!

The Cheech Marin Center for Chicano Art & Culture, affectionately known as The Cheech, is part of the Riverside Art Museum (RAM)—one museum with two locations, the Riverside Art Museum and The Cheech, which is now open. A public-private partnership between RAM, the City of Riverside, and comedian Cheech Marin, one of the world’s foremost collectors of Chicano art. Everyone is invited to be part of an art and cultural experience that is joyful, full of discovery, and celebrates the richness of the Chicano community.

Marin’s gift consists of approximately 500 works by Chicano artists—including the likes of Carlos Almaraz, Judithe Hernández, Gilbert “Magú” Luján, Sandy Rodriguez, Frank Romero, and Patssi Valdez— to RAM’s permanent collection.

The Cheech Illustration

The Cheech is a significant milestone for the art community as well as the people and culture the art represents. Chicano art reflects the happenings, the people, and the “sabor,” or flavor, of the community, and will appeal to not only those who value a more complete and complex understanding of American art and history, but also to those looking to find inspiration and a more powerful and emotional personal experience when interacting with the art; it will speak to the souls who see it.

A visit to The Cheech will inform and inspire, time and again! See yourself reflected here.
