cross a colorful bridge to begin your museum experience.

Strokes of color draw visitors across the Museum bridge in artist Panca’s 48-foot-long mural SMILE. Playful eyes and hearts (or are they noses?) are scattered through these lines of color, creating the impression of deconstructed, curious faces.

Panca transforms the urban environment with murals featuring an ever-evolving host of characters. A core part of the vibrant Tijuana-San Diego border art scene for many years, Panca is now bringing her distinct visual style to murals in San Diego, most recently a four-story tall piece at the arts space Bread and Salt.
