Event Details

As a woman Mary Elizabeth Jane Colter was original, complex, creative and unconventional. Her architecture exhibits those qualities as well: it was an expression of her personality and her passion. Andrew Berke, one of her biographers, says it well: The story of Mary Colter, is compelling.

It is a one-of-a-kind tale of talent and tenacity, played out against a backdrop of flourishing opportunity in a rugged region-telling of an exceptional person who pioneered both as an architect and as a woman.

In this talk, Susan will talk about the buildings at the couth rim of the Grand Canyon, but also about some of Mary Colter’s hotels – El Navajo and especially La Posada in Winslow, AZ
