As the Kansas City Chiefs celebrate 50 years as a franchise throughout the season, several promotions have brought together various communities on the celebration tour and given back to fans with the season ticket holder giveaway of new Chiefs jerseys.
Now the Chiefs are also working to embrace Midwestern art with an invitation to help decorate Arrowhead Stadium with a long-gestating plan headed up by Lamar Hunt's daughter, Sharron Hunt Munson.
"Rather than simply decorate or beautify these spaces," Munson said, "we wanted to celebrate our region and all of the art and artists that make it so special and, in doing so, bring art to entirely new audiences. Our hope is that we will build on the wonderful community asset that Arrowhead Stadium already is.
"We've given quite a bit of thought to this," she continues, "contemplating, discussing and researching the program since 2010. This year, as we mark 50 years in Kansas City for the Chiefs, we felt it the perfect time to formally launch the process."
