Lonnie Hanzon is a bit of a wizard; in fact, he once held the title of Wizard-in-Residence at the Museum of Outdoor Arts. His artistic oeuvre is a cabinet of curiosities (an exhibit he staged while at MOA bore the same name), a baroque mixture of whimsical public art, starry contemporary holiday displays and bottled minutiae from another time and place.
A few of his accomplishments? The Evolution of the Ball arch that's amused baseball fans since Coors Field opened nearly twenty years ago, Hudson Holiday's two-year seasonal light show at Hudson Gardens (which has moved on to new heights at the Houston Zoo), an ethereal chandelier at Palazzo Verdi in the Tech Center, and more magical public art to come; the list is long and gilded by Hanzon's unstoppable creativity. He's definitely one of Colorado's most creative artists; read on for his answers for the 100CC questionnaire.
