We too may bloom, trust the sun, unfurl our petals to life, and like   the butterfly be harbingers of beauty, the messengers of life. —James Hubbell

Tijuana and San Diego are important cities with much in common: topography weather native plants and animals and culture. They exist side by side straddling a border that both divides and connects. James Hubbell honors this contradiction by using his art to metaphorically bridge the divide and build a new and very real sense of community. Brick by brick mosaic chip by mosaic chip Hubbell invites everyday people from Baja California and San Diego to join him in creating spaces of beauty and importance. Collaboration turns strangers into friends and a border separating people diminishes.
