“LoveBird”

Just landed at the Entrance to Love Field Airport, in Dallas, Texas: “LoveBird” sculpture.  

Poised for flight, “LoveBird” alights at the head of the runway, guardian of Love Field, spreading its 90′ wingspan in a display of pride and optimism. Its sleek contours compliment the Modernism of the terminal, suggesting a fantastical bird or advanced aircraft.  To some it may evoke the “wing display” of the Mockingbird, namesake of the adjacent roadway and Texas State bird.  Is it ascending or descending? Either way, it rises delicately from a fine point, slightly canted, stabilized only by slender cables arrayed in a fan form suggesting tail feathers.

Landscape improvements scheduled for completion in Spring of 2022.
