Tijuana's Generation Art: A cultural flowering in this Mexican city of possibilities


Out of Tijuana’s bloody narco years comes an intriguing wave of creativity in this young city, just 126 years old. Artists, architects, musicians and street performers are running arts organizations – small and large, established and homegrown – and trying to build a cultural legacy. These are galleries and institutions that don't just show art but are also actively working to educate and help shape a generation of artists and designers.
