Meet the MasterMinds: Year 4

Across the metro area, artists and arts enthusiasts are working hard -- often unappreciated and uncompensated -- to change the cultural landscape. Catherine O'Neill's Art From Ashes uses poetry to elevate people, particularly children, above unfortunate surrounding. The organization's efforts are so exemplary that it was a clear choice for our fourth class of MasterMinds.

But everyone in last year's class could have been a valedictorian. Jill Hadley Hooper and Tracy Weil, who've done so much to advance the Rino arts district, were honored in Visual Arts; Mona Lucero got the nod in Fashion/Design; Jason Bosch, who brought us ArgusFest, took the MultiMedia award; and Creative Music Works, which has labored long and hard to bring great performers to Denver, was named the Performing Arts MasterMind.
