Just south of San Diego, the San Ysidro Land Port of Entry is currently undergoing a major renovation to create a “port of the future.”

The Weekly Standard reported that the U.S. General Services Administration has announced $500,000 in estimated art commissions for Phase 3 of a $735 million project to renovate and expand the busiest land port in the western hemisphere.

Funding for the art commission comes from the GSA’s “Art in Architecture” program. The program reserves “one-half of one percent of the estimated construction costs for each new federal building” for pieces of art.
