DESCRIPTION: The central figure in the artwork is that of Moss Lee Love, the pioneering aviator from whom Love Field takes its name. To the left of the design is a collage of images that are taken from indigenous plant and bird life. To the far right we can see a historic map of Downtown Dallas from about the time of the first runway construction at Love Field. To the left of the map is a large globe showing modern-day flight paths around the world with Dallas as a central location.
There are multi-layers of poems that relate to man’s desire to fly: Some of the text is totally legible and sharp to read while other layers of text are seen as soft, dream-like “vapor trails” across the sky uniting and connecting everything.
