There are some amazing things happening in the Tijuana art scene at the moment.
After a few dark days of cultural depression caused by the drug wars and a huge decline in tourism, it seemed like the city was in a downward spiral.
But then something amazing happened.
With no tourists left to please with promises of nudie shows and $10 all-you-can-drink specials, young people took advantage and rebuilt their hometown. Up cropped a slew of art galleries and creative spaces focused on local artists – 206 Arte Contemporaneo, Pasaje Rodriguez, TJ in China and many others.
