A key figure within LA’s Chicano art scene, Richard Duardo co-founded the politically-minded collective Centro de Arte Público in 1977 and earned the nickname “West Coast Warhol” through his poppy, silk-screened portraits of celebrities such as Jimi Hendrix, Duke Ellington and Lauren Bacall. Outside of his artwork, Duardo turned his mastery with serigraph printing and publishing into a business, acting as managing director of the downtown print shop Modern Multiples. He collaborated with everyone from David Hockney and Keith Haring to Banksy and Shepard Fairey. Upon Duardo’s passing in 2014, iconic comic and avid art collector Cheech Marin told the Los Angeles Times, “An artist could have no better friend than Richard.” With “Maestro of Pop,” the McNay celebrates the master printer with a collection of 20 large-scale works gifted to the museum by UTSA president Ricardo Romo. $5-$10, 10am-9pm Thu, 10am-4pm Fri, noon-5pm Sun, 10am-4pm Tue, McNay Art Museum, 6000 N. New Braunfels Ave., (210) 824-5368, mcnayart.org. — Bryan Rindfuss
