19 Oct “Papel Chicano Dos” Art Book Now Available
JUST RELEASED! Papel Chicano Dos: Works on Paper from the Cheech Marin Collection is now available for purchase online through Amazon.
Dating from late 1980s to present day, the 65 artworks featured in this art book range from watercolor paintings and aquatints to pastel drawings and mixed media.
