The Cheech Marin Center for Chicano Art & Culture opened this month in Riverside. It’s a celebration of Chicano art.
Acosta is responsible for building strategic plans and advises on organizational policy and communication issues. In addition, at the center he leads the Legal Services, Senior Services, and Cultural Arts & Education departments.
