The FRONT Arte & Cultura

The FRONT is an active gallery, arts education space, and meeting venue for community residents and artists. Run by Casa Familiar in San Ysidro, California, it is the only art gallery  in San Ysidro and is located at the approximate center of the district.

In 2017 we  celebrated our 10th anniversary. In the last decade THE FRONT has been an active agent in the cultural life of San Ysidro. Dozens of art exhibitions, concerts, dance performances, lectures, book readings, workshops and many other cultural activities have made THE FRONT the most important cultural institution of San Ysidro.

Casa Familiar’s Art and Culture Center, The FRONT, was developed as an idea in 2004, as Casa Familiar’s Enterprise Rose Fellowship came to a close, as space devoted to the promotion of the arts and community/neighborhood design. A long time dream of Andrea Skorepa and Luz Camacho to have an art gallery finally saw an opportunity in 2006 when the property was purchased, re-developed and opened in November of 2007.

The FRONT is an adaptive re-use project in that the building was the first commercial dry goods store in the border community of San Ysidro and is a Louis J. Gill designed building, nephew of the more well known San Diego architect of the era, Irving Gill. The 1929 building was restored and re-built to include new services and utilities, restoration of the 3,000 square foot commercial storefront, restoration and refinishing of the two-2nd story apartments, and meet all modern codes.

We hope you visit us soon!
