The Cheech Marin Center for Chicano Art & Culture opened in June 2022 as a public-private partnership between RAM, the City of Riverside, and comedian Cheech Marin—one of the world’s foremost collectors of Chicano art.

A significant portion of this collection will always be exhibited and can continue to be toured at venues across the nation and throughout the world!

Located in Riverside’s downtown historic core adjacent to The Mission Inn Hotel & Spa in the cultural hub of Inland Southern California.

Students and faculty from five local colleges and universities will research and learn about the finest private collection of Chicano art in the U.S.

A catalyst for the grassroots Riverside arts scene that encourages emerging Latino artists throughout the Inland Empire.

Art education and visitor engagement for all ages will be at the core of The Cheech.

“Together, we hope to bring every aspect of Chicano art

to this region as well as the rest of the world.

We have something wonderful to give.”—Cheech Marin
