Cross Border Art and Latinx 'Cultura' coming to SAN

Wednesday, October 4, 2023

This Hispanic and Latinx Heritage Month (Mes de la Herencia Hispana), we want to give you a sneak peek at some of the very cool Latinx art and concessions coming to San Diego International Airport! 

-New T1 Concessions 

When the New Terminal 1 opens in 2025, you’ll be able to take your pick between Brazilian-inspired eats and kombucha, Tijuana taquería-style street tacos and burritos, Mexico City-inspired flavors, and even Mexican/Japanese fusion sushi. The New T1 will also feature Barrio Logan style Chicano art at the SANArts Market, and a Univision Travel Goods Store. In the meantime, go check out these local brick-and-mortar eateries in the South Bay and beyond to get a taste of what’s coming.

-El Pez Sushi  (Imperial Beach)

-The Taco Stand (Downtown San Diego, La Jolla)

-Puesto (The Headquarters at Seaport Village, Mission Valley, La Jolla)

-Novecientos Grados (New T1 exclusive)

-Nova Kombucha (Chula Vista, Ocean Beach)

-Espacios & Lines Temporary Art Exhibit 

What does it mean to be a gateway into a region separated by an international border, while also sharing so much culture and history? What are the similarities and differences in how these cities think about the process and purpose of creating? How are artists and designers investigating the border between art and design – does it exist, and how is it being reinforced or dissolved? Espacios & Lines, will examine this with the work of more than a dozen artists on both sides of the San Diego/Tijuana border. This collection of work will offer a perspective on how we think about “home,” and is curated by our SANArts team. San Diego and Tijuana share a long history of cultural, economic, and physical ties. The two cities collaborate on many projects and issues that benefit the entire binational region. In 2021, the World Design Organization (WDO) designated the San Diego-Tijuana region as the 2024 World Design Capital. The selection of the San Diego-Tijuana joint bid makes it the first binational World Design Capital in WDO history. Espacios & Lines comes to SAN in 2024!
