The Lodo Mural Project

This exhibit was a part of a larger public program that took place from January through September 2000 at 16 Market Street, in downtown Denver, Colorado. Across from a central bus station, along a busy corridor in an area known as LoDo, or Lower Downtown, a 250 foot long mural introduced passers-by to some of the many women who have contributed to Colorado history.

Some of these women are well known, like Margaret "Molly" Brown. Others are anonymous, like the many young women who taught the children of farmers to read in one-room schoolhouses during the early days of the frontier. All of them have helped shape the world in which we live.

Although the mural is not presently publicly displayed, you can learn more about the women in the project her in our gallery.
