The 1-5-B, Episode 2: Work in Progress, A Conversation with Jann Haworth

Can you name five women artists? What about five women scientists? Mathematicians? Poets?
Jann Haworth couldn’t, and in her new community-sourced mural project, the creative director of The Leonardo set out to investigate and celebrate the accomplishments of women in our lives. The 28-foot long mural – a work in progress – opens this Friday, October 7, in the Street Gallery of the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art.
