The lobby of Dallas Love Field Airport is looking a bit more LUVly these days thanks to a new art exhibit on display.

Midlothian’s Natalie Megonigal is one of a dozen patient artists from Children’s Medical Center who has donated their original pieces of art to the exhibit, which is on display in March. The theme of the exhibit is “Hearts for LUV and airplanes.”

Natalie, 11, has been diagnosed with leukemia and has endured numerous hospitalizations and treatments.

Natalie has also been a source of inspiration for area residents and a number of local organizations have held fundraisers to help her fight this disease.

The patient artists were on-site recently to admire their works of art hanging in the airport.

Many patients at Children’s enjoy the therapeutic art classes taught at the hospital.

Recreational art is intended to nurture young talent and to provide a community showcase for those who excel in the arts.

Children’s Medical Center Dallas was named one of the top pediatric hospitals in the country by Child Magazine and U.S.News & World Report.

The Natalie Megonigal Foundation has been established to help the family pay for Natalie’s medical bills.
