According to Cheech, the term menudo means “a little of this, a little of that.” Through a variety of media and styles, works in “Menudo: Chicano Art from the Cheech Marin Collection” capture the social, political and religious life of Mexican-Americans. The collection consists of pastels, drawings, oils and acrylics. Included are paintings by master artists such as Carlos Almaraz, Frank Romero and Patssi Valdez, and well-known Texas artists Benito Huerta, Vincent Valdez, Alex Rubio and Cesar A. Martinez.
