On Sunday morning Tijuana muralist Enrique Chiu took us on a lap of his various murals around the city – from downtown to the border to the beach – with Advancing Students Forward, a local non-profit whose mission is to provide disadvantaged students access to education and support for academic success so that they can create a promising future for themselves and for the community in which they live.
Come mid-May he'll be joining us again to paint a mural with the kids outside their community center in Tecolote in southwestern Tijuana.

Turista Libre does an afternoon of photo opps with Tijuana's stationary giants, monuments that most only know from afar: the original Agua Caliente Hotel and Casino minaret, Cuauhtemoc Moctezuma, Abraham Lincoln, Padre Kino, Miguel Hidalgo, Tijuana's take on Rio de Janeiro's Christ the Redeemer, Armando Muñoz's Tijuana III Milenio "La Mona" and more. More photos.

Turista Libre got up-close and personal with the borderland's sprawling concrete canvas last weekend, on the second installment of our ongoing series of Tijuana street art treks. Along for the ride were two of the city's star muralists, El Norteño and Glow, who led us around town – from Playas to Boulevard Casa Blanca – on a hunt for their most iconic works.
