“Papel Chicano Dos” represents the second time Cheech Marin’s Chicano art collection — with a specific focus on works on paper — has been shown at Muzeo. The first time was January through April 2008. This second go-round features 65 works by 24 established and emerging Chicano/a artists. The artworks — many of them new to the collection and not exhibited before — date from the late 1980s to the present. Techniques range from watercolor, acrylic and aquatint to spray paint, paste and mixed media.
