The Dallas Love Field Centennial Planning Committee is excited to host an array of events in honor of its 100 years of service. Events, which will begin in fall 2016, include:
Wed19Oct2016Sun31Dec2017Dallas Love Field Aiport - Corridor connecting main entrance to baggage claim
To showcase the rich history of Dallas Love Field, the Love Field Art Program, in coordination with the Frontiers of Flight Museum and the Commemorative Air Force, will install a one-of-a-kind art exhibit beginning in fall 2016 and lasting through fall 2017. Glass displays near the airport’s baggage claim will be dedicated specifically to Centennial-themed artifacts, each covering 25-year periods. The exhibits will include photos, ticket stubs and other memorabilia collected over time, including items submitted by members of the community for the Centennial Celebration.
Displayed in four sections throughout the year, each exhibit will highlight Dallas Love Field’s history. The final quarter will incorporate artwork from local students depicting what Dallas Love Field Airport means to them, and what they believe the future of the airport will look like.
The opening phase of the exhibit includes the installation of two model warplanes hung from the airport’s ceiling. The Curtiss “Jenny” and the P-51 Red Tails replica warplanes will make for a spectacular exhibit commencement along with the first set of artifacts carefully curated by the Love Field Art Program, the Frontiers of Flight Museum and the Commemorative Air Force.
The community is encouraged to participate by submitting artifacts they believe may help tell a portion of the extensive history of this beloved airport. Artifacts can be submitting by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
