Cheech Marin

For those of you that don't know, Cheech Marin of Cheech and Chong is a huge art collector. Cheech has the largest private collection of Chicano Art in America. One of his goals is to bring the Chicano Art movement and his collection to the masses and so far it has worked. This past week, he took time out his busy touring schedule to come meet with members of the Sour Grapes in search of new work for his collection. Cheech was a very intelligent and funny man and treated us with much respect. It was an honor to visit with him at HCG Gallery and he was very pleased with our work. Look out for his touring art exhibitions in the future, as they will feature works by the Sour Grapes.
