100 Colorado Creatives: Lisa Gedgaudas

#27: Lisa Gedgaudas

Lisa Gedgaudas works behind the scenes as program director for Create Denver: While we enjoy the evidence of her efforts in art exhibits at the McNichols Building and public forums like the recent Denver Music Summit, she's running the numbers on who's out there in the local creative world, what they're doing and what it might take to keep them here, with success, in Denver. But she's also an artist herself in an administrative role, lending support to other artists, and that's a powerful combination. How does she keep the balance?

KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Susan Froyd started writing for Westword as the "Thrills" editor in 1992 and never quite left the fold. These days she still freelances for the paper in addition to walking her dogs, enjoying cheap ethnic food and reading voraciously. Sometimes she writes poetry.
