The Riverside Art Museum (RAM) announces the selection of María Esther Fernández to serve as Artistic Director of its Cheech Marin Center for Chicano Art & Culture of the Riverside Art Museum, its top leadership position at The Cheech. The museum is also pleased to announce the official public opening date for The Cheech as Sunday, May 8, 2022.

As the inaugural Artistic Director of The Cheech, Fernández will lead the curatorial vision and programming direction for the national center starting August 2021. “Esther brings a wealth of experience and expertise in Chicano art history that aligns well with The Cheech,” states Cheech Marin. “I look forward to supporting her in this integral leadership role as Artistic Director, which will shape our strategic curatorial and programmatic vision for years to come.”

“I am honored to join the Riverside Art Museum staff who have worked tirelessly with the City of Riverside, the RAM board, and Cheech Marin to make this historic center a realization,” states Fernández. “I look forward to cultivating fruitful collaborations with my colleagues at the museum and the broader community to work towards a more inclusive and complex understanding of Chicana/o/x art and culture. There is important work to be done at The Cheech to advance new scholarship, and exhibition and community programming, while continuing to build the collection through purposeful acquisitions to expand the narrative of Chicana/o/x art and address the historical gaps within American art.”

“On behalf of the entire Riverside Art Museum Board of Trustees and staff,” states Drew Oberjuerge, Executive Director of the Riverside Art Museum, “we are so thrilled that María Esther Fernández will be joining us to lift The Cheech off the ground. We look forward to supporting her and learning from her as she brings tremendous knowledge and experience to the project.”

While details of opening activities are still being finalized, RAM asks the community to save the date for The Cheech’s public opening on Sunday, May 8, 2022. Festivities leading up to the public opening include a fundraising gala presented by UNIDOS on Friday, May 6, 2022, at the Riverside Convention & Visitors Center. To keep abreast of plans underway for The Cheech, sign up for email updates at www.thecheechcenter.org and follow @TheCheechCenter on social media.

Let's talk type! Join us, the Inlandia Institute, and Typewriter Muse today, Saturday, July 10, at 2 p.m. for a joyful celebration of the typewriter! Free for RAM members; included with paid general admission.

Typewriter aficionado and repairman to the stars, Bob Marshall, will talk about his love for this classic writing instrument, which, as he sees it, is “no longer the business machine of yesteryear, but the preferred writing tool for a curious, creative mind.” Journey with Bob through the decades and discover how these writing machines of old can find new purpose as a muse to your creative writing process. Typewriters provided—bring your imagination.

The typewriter installation in RAM's atrium includes eight typewriters you can actually touch—as well as one mystery typewriter with an intriguing origin story, under glass.

Typewriters will be on display in the RAM Atrium through July 16 and visitors are encouraged to give them a try. Prove your skills with “The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog” and other inspirations from typing class—or hunt and peck a tome of your own!

Some of my RAM friends may have observed that I decorated my fun Husky Dog with workers stuck in their jobs. I called it "The People's Dog." I have a long-standing devotion to politically egalitarian themes: Compared to other venues, I am more gratified when I exhibit in politically/socially-themed shows. So I am very gratified to be included in SoLA Contemporary's ACTIVISM + ART exhibit in which I exhibit SNOWDEN #6. Reception: Jan 4, 6-9 pm. 3718 W. Slausen Av., Los Angeles, Thank you Peggy Jo Sivert and the board. I hope to meet with my friends there.
