This 61,420-square-foot center houses hundreds of paintings, drawings, photographs, and sculptures by a wealth of accomplished artists. Located in Downtown Riverside adjacent to The Mission Inn Hotel & Spa in the cultural hub of inland Southern California, this incredible museum campus offers something for visual art lovers of every variety. A public-private partnership between the Riverside Art Museum (RAM), the City of Riverside, and comedy duo Cheech & Chong's Cheech Marin—one of the world’s foremost collectors of Chicano art—The Cheech is the heart for Chicano art of all kinds. Your day also includes admission to neighboring RAM as well as time for lunch on your own at The Mission Inn or one of several restaurants in historic Downtown Riverside.
