Entijuanarte tease, Turista Libre 1st anniversary T-shirts
So here's what you'll find at our Entijuanarte booth outside CECUT this weekend. Turista Libre teamed up with borderland urban design label Zona N Arte and intellectual property firm MINK to convert three photos of iconic Tijuana cityscapes into three-by-three meter line drawings. The crowd -- prompted by the theme, "Forget the stereotypes. Tell your Tijuana." -- is invited to lay down the color. But instead of solid Sharpie patches, they'll write words that convey their own TJ anecdotes. Hopefully by Sunday night all the white space will be no more.
And here's a look at the limited-edition "primer aniversario" Turista Libre T-shirt featuring Mexico's ever-coveted Volkswagen Vocho, designed by Zona N Arte, that goes to any contributor who says the magic words: "Yo soy Turista Libre."
