Anne Evans: Patroness of Colorado arts

by The 100 Companies

Anne Evans was the daughter of one of Colorado’s first governors. While her father advocated for science and engineering, she was educated in Paris, Berlin and New York and paved the way for the arts.

Evans was a member of a local art club that eventually became the Denver Art Museum, and was instrumental in curating the first-ever exhibits to feature Native American art in 1925.

While serving on the Denver Public Library Commission, she helped bring multiple libraries to the state. Evans also developed Civic Center Park – now a national historic landmark – and helped create the Central City Opera Association.
