There’s a brand-new addition to the Arrowhead Art Collection as of Monday morning, and at 11-feet-tall and 600-pounds, it’s tough to miss.
The piece – titled “Third-and-Long” – is an abstract sculpture created by local artist Jacob Burmood that depicts players moving in every direction during a game, and for fans that pass by the Tower Gate entrance on the west side of the stadium, it’s now part of the Arrowhead experience.
“We loved Jacob’s abstract and structural work. We’ve been looking for more sculptures to place outside the stadium,” said Sharron Hunt, Chairwoman of the Arrowhead Art Collection and sister of Chiefs Chairman & CEO Clark Hunt. “Jacob watched different plays, running patters and players trying to intercept the ball, and he took that concept to make this sculpture.”
