About This Project

This exhibition features the work of Chicano and Chicana artists from performer Cheech Marin’s private collection. Included are paintings, drawings, and prints by Carlos Almaraz, Frank Romero,  Shizu Saldamando, Patssi Valdez, and Vincent Valdez. “The word menudo in the title refers to its slang usage – a little bit of this, a little bit of that,’ says Cheech Marin. ‘From my collection, I combined popular works shown in earlier exhibitions with some of my latest acquisitions and others never before publicly displayed.”
