Cheech Marin: the World’s Leading Chicano Street Art Collector
Kicking off today’s show is an icon, a legend, an influence on my life, and an all around positive guy. He is Cheech Marin, half of the pioneering act Cheech and Chong. Now while Cheech launched quite a career as part of the first Chicano, hippie comedy act to have a platinum selling comedy album, not that there are many others by the way, but he has also gone on to becoming a respected actor and philanthropist. But it’s his art collecting that is really driving him these days. You see Cheech has what is believed to be the most significant collection of Chicano street and fine art in the world. And he gives a sneak peek at his prized possessions right here, only on LatiNation.
