Bravo, Cheech

June 21, 2008

I SPENT a wonderful Father's Day at LACMA, inspired by the article ("It's a Battle Won for Cheech Marin," by Agustin Gurza, June 14) on Cheech Marin's art collection exhibit, "Los Angelenos." I have to say that of all the art I have ever seen at LACMA, including the Van Gogh and Diego Rivera collections, I have never found a collection as consistently excellent. Every one of the paintings (and the incredible pastels) was alive with color, energy, expression and personality.

"Phantom Sightings," on the other hand, was hit and miss. But it was not a disappointment, just a rewarding-in-its-own-way contrast to the high level of quality and intensity in the "Los Angelenos" exhibit.
