1918: Greek Theater

 

Designed by Denver architects Marean & Norton, in collaboration with Chicago architect Edward H. Bennet, the Greek Theater was completed in 1918 fulfilling Bennett's vision of commemorating park benefactors and providing an open air theater.  The Greek Theater included murals by local artist Allen True, who would be commissioned in later years to paint murals in the State Capitol Rotunda and the nearby Brown Palace Hotel lobby.
