Saturday, March 7, 10:30 a.m.–noon, All Ages, RSVP online as seating is limited; materials included, but we encourage you to bring your own printed poems and black & white images

What is a zine? We’ll discuss the origins of the small-circulation magazines called “zines” and how to create small volumes of your own artwork, ideas, and poetry that incorporate themes of Latinx identity. Learn the basics of zine-making construction and layout using the saddle-stitch binding method.

Chicano Art Then and Now

Saturday, March 7, 1 p.m.–2 p.m., RSVP online as seating is limited

In celebration of The Cheech, the first Chicano art museum in the nation scheduled to open in Riverside in 2021, join The Arts Area for a discussion on the Chicano art movement then and now. A panel of Chicanx artists and scholars will consider how the themes and functions of Chicano Art have evolved within this artistic community since the 1960s. What does the movement and art express for the new Chicanx generation today and what is its role in shaping new perceptions of Chicanx identity? Selections of works from The Cheech collection will be highlighted alongside new works from contemporary Chicanx artists.


These programs are a part of The Cheech @ RAM series of exhibitions and programming leading to the opening of The Cheech Marin Center for Chicano Art, Culture & Industry of the Riverside Art Museum in 2021.
