The building in which The Front Arte & Cultura is located has a lot of history. This year will be the 90th anniversary since its construction and also the 10th anniversary operating as The Front Arte & Cultura.

Some years ago, Casa Familiar asked the community for old photos of San Ysidro and received a huge response.

Tia Juana - The Initial Point is a contemporary look at those photos and some other documents with the collaboration of regional artists and the community.
