Los Tejanos: Chicano Art from the Cheech Marin Collection was an exhibition of 39 artworks by 14 artists born and/or based in Texas represented in Marin’s collection.
Featured artists are Jari “Werc” Alvarez, Melesio (Mel) Casas, Carlos Donjuán, Gaspar Enríquez, Jacinto Guevara, Adán Hernández, Benito Huerta, César A. Martínez, Joe Peña, Alex Rubio, Ricardo Ruiz, Marta Sánchez, Vincent Valdez and Andy A. Villarreal. The artists are contemporary storytellers who use their own experiences to interpret symbols and traditions in modern life, yet much of their imagery and subject matter are rooted in historical references. The exhibition was organized by Melissa Richardson Banks. An accompanying full-color art catalog was published by CauseConnect.
