Cheech Marin & Gaspar Enriquez Coming To El Paso To Discuss Chicano Art

Gaspar Enriquez: Luis y la Virgen de Guadalupe
Gift of Martini de Groat and the Southwest Bell Foundation

The El Paso Museum of Art along with CommUNITY en ACCIÓN welcomes Cheech Marin and Gaspar Enriquez for a free event to discuss the Chicano art movement.

Gasper Enriquez is our very own local jewel. He is a living Chicano artist who was a fomer art teacher at Bowie High School. Enriquez is now retired and is doing what he always loved to do, and that is paint and draw, Chicano style.

Mr. Enriquez has been very busy from restoring an ancient building in San Elizario, converting the space into studios and most recently was commissioned to do a piece for the new El Paso Triple-A Baseball stadium.

Gaspar Enríquez: Metaphors of El Barrio runs through May 11, 2014 with the exhibition displaying over 50 prints, sculptures and paintings from 1983-2013 and will also include a video with the artist himself.

Enter Cheech Marin who is an avid Chicano art collector, who currently has over 600 pieces of art in his collection from different artists including art by Enriquez. The two have also been long time friends. Marin got into Chicano art back in the ‘80s and has since been a big supporter and proponent of sharing the Chicano art movement with the rest of the world.

An Afternoon with Cheech Marin and Gaspar Enríquez is set for 1:30 p.m. February 27th.
