Remembering Diane Dunn

“Diane had a quiet passion for things. And she truly believed in her heart that art is what makes life worth living,” says CU Presents Executive Director Joan McLean Braun. “She said, ‘I think you need to do more, not less. You need more people to give. I’m willing to give, and I’m willing to lead the giving team.’”
