Mary Belle Grant
Mary Belle Grant was one of the creators and early visionaries of the Coors Western Art Exhibit & Sale. She served on the advisory committee since its inception and every year had been a patron and passionate friend of the arts in the Denver community. Beginning in 2000, the Coors Western Art Exhibit & Sale created this award in her memory to honor an individual or couple who embody the spirit of the western way of life and symbolize the passion of the West through art.
