What is your vision of the future of the Visual arts for San Diego?

"We agree that the artistic-cultural movement in the Tijuana-San Diego region goes beyond effervescence. We are convinced that the quality, compromise and innovation of the artists, in the various disciplines, have been marking not only a path but a whole trend that improves itself with the individual or collective proposal of those participating."
