Marin to donate Mexican-American art
EmptyActor-comedian Cheech Marin is donating copies of works from his Mexican-American art collection to some of the nation's best-known museums and universities.
Marin, 60, says he will donate 50 sets of high-quality digital prints of his traveling collection "Chicano Visions: American Painters on the Verge."
Marin has been taking his personal Chicano art collection on tour for about five years.
Recipients of the digital copies include the Smithsonian, UCLA, the San Antonio Museum of Art, where the collection debuted in 2001, and Marin's alma mater, California State University, Northridge.
