ART EVENTS

Marin Salon Series

Quarterly • By invitation only
Attendance: 20-100 influentials who love art, music, literature and fine dining

Hosted by art advocate and entertainer Cheech Marin with his classical pianist wife, Natasha, this exclusive series of events has been produced by CauseConnect since 2009. Often held at the couple’s private residence (and occasionally, other historic and cultural venues), the events are designed to showcase and share their interests in Chicano art, classical music, good food, literary works, and great conversation with friends, new and old. Each event features an artist or an author, a musician, and a chef in an intimate, informal setting. Typically, the format is cocktails and appetizers at 5 p.m., artist talk or author reading at 6 p.m., buffet dining at 6:15 p.m., concert at 7:15 p.m., and coffee and dessert at 7:30 p.m.
