Women in Aviation Featured as Statues at DAL
A pop-up exhibit on view now through March 9 at Dallas Love Field Airport (DAL) features 3D printed statues of contemporary women working in aviation or aerospace-related fields and includes astrophysicists, a rocket scientist, and an aviation maintenance technician.
The bright orange and hard-to-miss statues on display at DAL were selected from the larger If/ThenSheCan collection of 122 statues featuring contemporary women of all ages and backgrounds working in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) professions.
A scheduled exhibit of all 122 statues for elsewhere in Dallas (NorthPark Center) has been postponed until later in 2021 due to COVID-19, so DAL art specialist Rachel Simpson coordinated a pop-up preview exhibition at the airport as part of the Love Field Art Program.
The Dallas Love Field pop-up exhibit features 15 statues from the If/Then series. Ten statues in the secured side of the terminal represent women working in aviation/aerospace professions. Five statues in the unsecured main lobby feature women working in other STEM related career fields.
