Papel Chicano Dos: Works on Paper from the Collection of Cheech Marin
February 16 – June 17, 2018
Dede Rogers Gallery, El Paso Museum of Art

This exhibition from major Chicano art collector Cheech Marin, Papel Chicano Dos features 65 works on paper by 24 established and evolving artists. Watercolors, pastels, aquatints, and mixed-media artworks signify the evolution of a collection as they also reimagine the ideas and struggles of the Chicano movement. Diverse, colorful, and iconic, the artworks in Papel Chicano Dos showcase practices ranging from the realism of Texas artists Gaspar Enriquez and Vincent Valdez to the expressionism of Californians Sonya Fe and Frank Romero. Prominent Chicano artists Diane Gamboa, Leo Limón, and Glugio “Gronk” Nicondra, and artists selected by Marin for the exhibition such as Carlos Almaraz and Carlos Donjuan bring a multifaceted view of the Chicano experience as well as present social issues relevant to all communities. Utilizing unique and traditional practices of portraiture, and varied viewpoints incorporating urban culture and images from a range of historical sources, these artists move Chicano art from marginalized to mainstream.

Funding for Papel Chicano Dos is provided by lead sponsor CommUNITY en Acción. Thank you to CEA and Castro Enterprises, Inc., Bravo Cadillac, Hunt Companies, The Hospitals of Providence, Sierra Machinery, and WestStar Bank for your generous support.

Additional support is provided by the Texas Commission on the Arts and the Shiloff Family Foundation.
