Cheech Marin: What’s the name of your company?
Me: Puro Pinche
CM: Puro Pinche?! (Laughing out loud) I love it! 😂
It was so great to meet the juan and only @cheechmarinofficial today at @sanantoniocollege’s inaugural #SACFiestaBrunch! Cheech is a huge collector of #Chicano art and he helped kick off SAC’s Multicultural Conference by presenting pieces from his collection done by #SanAntonio artists and spreading the word that “CHICANO ART IS AMERICAN ART. We ARE the mainstream. So let’s act like it.”
I also got to ask him how SA looks outside of the city and if we should incorporate “Latino” and “Chicano” into our cultural center names.
Congratulations to SAC for an amazing event aimed at raising funds for students about to drop out who could really use the financial help. $500 can make or break a college education, so please support if you can.
Can’t wait for next year!
