The southern half of this mural is temporarily in storage due to Great Hall construction within the terminal. This artwork will return once construction is completed.
"America, Why I Love Her" was inspired by family road trips from the artist's childhood. While traveling around the United States, Gary Sweeney was struck by the beauty and grandeur of the land, as well as the truly bizarre monuments and roadside attractions that dot the American landscape. "America, Why I Love Her" is an attempt to pay homage to family vacations in general, and to tourist spots in particular.
