San Diego: Gateway of the Americas Thomas J. Erhardt
About The Artwork
Thomas J. Erhardt and Other Artists
The brilliant colors and exacting detail of these nine ceremonial yarn paintings adorn the walls in the upper level of Terminal 2. Supervised by importer/artist Thomas J. Erhardt, the pieces are traditional works of art reflecting the culture and history of three of the Americas’ pre-Cortez indigenous cultures. The San Diego region’s Latino community traces some of its roots to these cultures, as well. This collection pays tribute to that legacy and offers all visitors a bright welcome to our region.
