Beauty of the Flint Hills by Newton Artist Observed at Arrowhead Stadium
Sharon Hunt Munson, daughter of the Kansas City Chiefs founder Lamar Hunt, is the director and developer of a new art program at Arrowhead Stadium. On July 1, 2012, Sharon Hunt Munson’s staff sent letters to art gallery owners in Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa, Oklahoma, and Arkansas in search of artists for Arrowhead Stadium’s new art collection. Out of 270 artists’ submissions, the Hunt family originally accepted 11. Only two artists were asked to submit more than one art piece. The Hunt family asked Phil Epp for three. “I was concerned if I would be selected,” says Epp. The three painted panels Epp submitted to the Kansas City Chiefs represented a mid-day prairie shower of layered blue and gray acrylics.
