Houston Fine Art Fair

Actor Cheech Marin, a well-known collector of Chicano art, is curating an exhibit of emerging Mexican-American artists for the Thomas Paul Gallery at the Houston Fine Art Fair. ''Chicano art is American art,'' says Marin via press materials. ''My goal is to bring the term 'Chicano' to the forefront of the art world.''

This is the second outing for the fair, which includes a wide range of Latin American artists this year. Galleries and artists from Bolivia, Cuba, Mexico and Colombia, among other Latin American countries, will join their compatriots from Korea, England and Switzerland.

Some 70 galleries, museums and organizations will participate in the four-day fair. There’s a VIP preview party at 6 p.m. Thursday, followed by an opening reception at 7:30 p.m. Regular viewing hours are 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday.
Sept. 13-16, 2012
