Meet the MasterMinds: Year 3
By the time we chose our third class of MasterMinds, we were beginning to feel like Ed McMahon. People were catching on to our sneaky fact-checking phone calls in February, wondering if they were about to get a knock on the door and a big check. But somehow, we still managed to come up with surprising new choices for our MasterMinds -- our efforts aided and abetted by two classes of MasterMind alums.
And the third time was truly a charm, with this list of winners: Jimmy Sellars in Visual Arts; Vox Feminista in Literary Arts; the Fabric Lab/Josh and Tran Wills in Fashion/Design; Jessica Robblee in Performing Arts; and Tony Shawcross of Deproduction/Denver Open Media in Multimedia.
Shawcross didn't expect the honor, but he later told us that it came at just the right time -- to meet payroll. Without the MasterMind award, he might have had to lay people off; instead, Denver Open Media has flourished.
