Dallas Love Field gets a piece of Dallas history

LOVE FIELD stained glass

The impressive art-collection at Dallas Love Field Airport gets larger with the addition of an important stained glass window rescued from the demolition of an East Dallas church in the summer of 2013.

According to the Dallas Office of Cultural Affairs, the window is part of a historically-significant work by Dallas artist and teacher Octavio Medellin and was one of four installed in a local church in 1960.

The church was demolished to build a YMCA but the four of the blue and turquoise stained glass panels were restored and reconstructed.

Now one of the restored windows – the one that was in the bell tower – will have a home in four windows above the Ticketing Hall at Dallas Love Field. Installation begins this week and should be complete by mid-April.
