Long time comedian and film/TV star Cheech Marin has kicked off a 2-month exhibition of his extensive Chicano art collection.
Many diverse paintings will be on display thru December 31st at the Manhattan Beach Art Center, located at 1560 Manhattan Beach Blvd.
I enjoyed meeting Cheech very much, as I was one of the first disc jockeys in the USA to play the Cheech & Chong classic “Santa Claus & His Old Lady” right before Christmas back in 1971.
Cheech was very friendly and enjoyed meeting Chicano art fans, as well as his many personal fans at the kickoff on October 26th. The exhibition was first envisioned by Homeira Goldstein, founder and chairman of the nonprofit Time4Art.
