Dana Hudkins Crawford is one of Denver’s most renowned preservationists and placemakers. Born in Salina, Kansas, Dana found her way to Denver after graduating from Radcliffe College. In the 1960s, Dana and her friends hosted spectacular jazz parties and invited jazz musicians from around the country to play shows in Denver. Between the jazz clubs, finding her perfect match, John W. R. Crawford III, and raising her four boys, Dana made important efforts toward preserving the history of Lower Downtown Denver.


Dana and All That Jazz is a celebration of her contributions to our city. Tour the sites of Dana’s projects – Union Station, Larimer Square, the Oxford Hotel, the Edbrooke Lofts, and the Flour Mill Lofts – and hear and read Dana’s recollections of the stories behind her work, in her own words.


This exhibition is open to the public Mondays - Fridays, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
