MUSIC VIDEO PERFORMERS
 

SAG-AFTRA today announced that it had reached a tentative agreement with the major record labels — Universal Music Group, Sony Music Entertainment, Warner Music Group, and Disney Music Group— for a successor to their industry-wide contract covering dancers and other performers on music videos. The original agreement was approved in June 2012.

The new two-year agreement was reached in the early evening hours of April 20. The first round of talks between the union and label representatives began on December 6, 2016, in Los Angeles with successive rounds in February and April.

Details of the agreement will not be released until it is reviewed by the SAG-AFTRA National Board at its regularly scheduled meeting April 22 – 23.

CHEECH MARIN CENTER FOR CHICANO ART

Actor and comedian Cheech Marin, who for decades has been a noted collector of Chicano art, is teaming up with the city of Riverside and the Riverside Art Museum to create a Chicano art center.

The proposed museum, tentatively titled the Cheech Marin Center for Chicano Art, Culture and Industry, would be housed in a roughly 60,000-square-foot building now occupied by the main branch of the Riverside Public Library, which will be moving to a new structure a few blocks away.

The goal of Marin’s center — still in the earliest planning stages — would be to provide a permanent home for more than 700 works from his collection, which includes painting, sculpture and photography by Chicano artists from throughout the United States.

“It’ll be the one place worldwide that everybody can go to for all things Chicano art,” says Marin. “And it will not just be display, but it will have an academic feature so Chicano art can be seen and can be studied. There are five universities in the area.”

It’ll be the one place worldwide that everybody can go to for all things Chicano art. — Cheech Marin

And though the institution already has a tentative name, Marin says he’s already come up with a nickname of his own. “The intimates call it ‘The Cheech,’” he jokes. “I’ll meet you at 3 o’clock at the Cheech!”
