Announcing New Public Artwork!

Hilton Home2 Suites

I’ve been hiding a little something under my hat! But now I’m thrilled to announce that I was awarded a commission for permanent artwork on the exterior of the new Crossroads Hilton Homes2 Suites on the corner of 20th and Main St in Kansas City, MO. If you’re in the neighborhood – perhaps passing by on the streetcar – be sure to take a peek! (You can’t really miss it. It is approximately 130’x10′!)

“I am honored to create large-scale images for the Crossroads Arts District, a cultural center that has nurtured me and seen me mature as an artist over the last three decades. Big sky images brought down to street level will offer hotel guests one of the unique and intrinsic qualities of Kansas City—the ocean of land surrounding it. And for Kansas Citians, it will serve as a reminder that our city has flourished not in spite of, but because of, the sweeping landscape, and that there is still a lot of room for growth and daydreaming.” -Chris Dahlquist

A big thank you to Mid-America Arts Alliance, Sunflower Development Group, and True North Hotel Group for this opportunity and for adding to the creative ecosystem in Kansas City.

New Gallery Partner


Shelly & Ben Cascio

As my studio practice continues to grow, I’m excited about new partnerships that we are forming to support that growth. One of the latest and most exciting is a new relationship with a longtime colleague, Shelly Cascio. Shelly, along with her husband Ben, have opened Kansas City’s brandonjacobs gallery in the Crossroads Arts District. They will have a selection of my work available all of the time and have already secured a nice large commission for the studio! Plus, I am looking forward to showing a new series of work with them in August!

If you are in Kansas City please stop by and meet Shelly and Ben and welcome them as the newest partners of the Dahlquist Studio family.
