This summer, the City of Tijuana recognizes James Hubbell and his work fostering friendship and bi-national understanding with his first-ever exhibit in Mexico. Lado a Lado is a cross-border collaboration of the Ilan-Lael Foundation and the Instituto Municipal de Arte y Cultura de Tijuana that highlights decades of Hubbell’s work building community-based art and architecture at landmark locations in across Baja. The exhibit is happening in conjunction with the City of Tijuana’s 132nd anniversary celebration. The gallery show features some of Hubbell’s most iconic projects, Colegio La Esperanza schools (Tijuana), Pacific Rim Park (La Playa), the Kumeyaay Museum (Tecate), and Kuchumaa Passage at Rancho La Puerta (Tecate). Photographs, video, maquettes, plans, drawings and watercolors, sculpture, and art objects will tell the story behind Hubbell’s method of gathering community members and students to create works of art and architecture that benefit and inspire the many faces of Mexican society. The show opens Wednesday July 21st with a private reception. The exhibit is free and open to the public Monday through Friday 9am – 5pm. It is closed on weekends.
