Artist Patti Cramer was a familiar sight around town, walking her dogs through some of the unlikeliest neighborhoods, an unknowing prognosticator of all those places that would one day be hip, which she lived in simply because they were interesting: LoHi, long before anyone ever dreamed of tagging the edge of Highland with that upscale nickname; the Ballpark neighborhood, back when Denver didn’t have a major-league team, much less Coors Field; LoDo, which had a nickname by the ’80s but only a handful of residents — including Cramer, who lived in a studio/loft on the top floor of a far-from-gentrified warehouse owned by Arnold Schwarzenegger, of all people.
