From Chicano Now :
Chicano Now: American Expressions, a 5,000-square-foot
interactive exhibit, is produced in collaboration with
actor/entertainer and prolific art collector Cheech Marin.
With his guidance and support, the exhibit weaves
tradition, history and, of course, humor into a multi-media
expression of the lives and rich contributions of Chicanos.
What it means to be Chicano is little understood.
Chicanos have had a profound influence on this country's
customs, food, fashion, music, language, religion, sports
and more. America's Mexican heritage predates the
formation of our country. Chicano ancestors have been
here since before the Pilgrims, before the Founding
Fathers, before the United States itself. The fabric of
America includes a Chicano strain so strong, so
essential, that it blends seamlessly into the whole.
Chicano Now shines a spotlight on this rich culture.
Chicano Now is an exuberant outpouring of American
Chicano Now explodes stereotypes, inspiring an
appreciation of Chicano achievements and contributions.
Chicano Now emphasizes that every kid has a chance
and a choice. Chicano Now features custom, original art,
three-dimensional environments, original performances,
film/video presentations, music, history, artifacts,
interactives and more. Chicano Now introduces Chicano
expressions to the uninitiated, allowing them to
experience the impact and joy of Chicano contributions to
the American mainstream.
