Arguably one of Tijuana’s more popular visual exports in recent years, Panca’s (aypanca.com) paintings are an existential take on the border city's vivid surreality. Once reserved for underpasses, alleyways and other urban crevices, her work has since soared to new heights, from the walls of San Diego Art Institute to Wallpaper Magazine.
Tickets include roundtrip border transportation, a lap of recent murals with the artist, lunch at one of Panca's favorite taco spots, a visit to her Playas de Tijuana studio and an after-tour pop-up exhibit before returning to the border.
The group meets at the San Ysidro Transit Center at 11 a.m., with an estimated return to the border at 6 p.m.
Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?
This is an all-ages tour. Attendees under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?
We strongly recommend taking the San Diego trolley, as parking lots often costly – some charge up to $25US for eight hours – and often full. On weekends the last downtown-bound trolley departs San Ysidro at 12:58 a.m. More info at sdmts.com.
If driving, take either Interstate 5 or 805 south and get off at the last exit, but be careful not to miss that last exit and actually cross into Mexico. Park at any of the lots – we recommend the ones next to Jack in the Box, a left at the exit and a right at the next light – but give yourself 20-30 minutes because, again, lots are often full.
