Ruben Gonzalez

Ruben Gonzalez has created a ranch filled with eclectic art and memorabilia in the Coachella Valley called Ruben’s Ranch. Ruben’s Ranch pays tribute to the Aztec, Maya and Mexican culture. The space includes replicas of archaeological finds such as Chac Mool, Aztec calendar and interpretation of the pyramids of Tenochhtitlan. Ruben’s plan is to continue to create art that tells a story, educates youth and the community at large on the great empires of our Mexica roots.
