Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong have grown up and gone their separate ways. The two remain in contact and make appearances from time to time. Something I did not know about Cheech Marin, is that over the years he has been collecting art. In fact, he is considered one of the biggest advocates for Chicano art.

He will actually be bringing a big part of his collection to right here in Wichita Falls, Texas. “Papel Chicano Dos: Works on Paper” will be appearing at the Wichita Falls Museum of Art at Midwestern State University.

This will be beginning at 7:30pm on September 19.
