INTERIOR DECORATING: In K.C., Alice Thorson notes Chiefs Owner the Hunt family’s latest idea is for "a 'world class' collection of art to be installed" at Arrowhead Stadium. Letters went out last month "to several local gallery owners, inviting participation in the Kansas City Chiefs Art Program." Top execs of the Nelson-Atkins Museum, the Kemper Museum and the K.C. Art Institute "are on board." Chiefs Founder Lamar Hunt's daughter, Sharron Hunt Munson, "is directing the program with input from" her brothers. She "envisions artwork at Arrowhead that 'celebrates Midwestern culture.'" Munson in an email said that the idea for an art collection "was inspired in part by the many new public spaces created by recent renovations to Arrowhead Stadium." Leopold Gallery Owner and art dealer Paul Dorrell was "engaged by the Hunts to organize the collection." Installation will "begin in late spring 2013" (K.C. STAR, 8/9).
