Cheech Marin’s Chicano Art Collection

Since 2003, Melissa has worked with Cheech Marin, who holds one of the largest private – and most recognized — collections of Chicano art in the United States. Since 1988, he has amassed more than 700 paintings, prints, and sculptures. For the past 15 years, Melissa has managed his art collection, which included creating a new inventory system to coincide with tracking by collections storage, researching provenance of artwork, and photographing new and exhibited works. She also produces and tours museum exhibitions as well as publishes art books based on his collection.
