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. For our second episode in The 1-5-B podcast, Shawn Rossiter sat down with the artist to discuss the project.

Work in Progress is at the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art October 7 – January 14, with an opening reception October 21, 7 pm. Along with the mural, acclaimed photographer Lynn Blodgett has taken portraits of the participants, which will be hung alongside the mural, to recognize those in the community who are active participants in the strive for equality.
The 1-5-B is 15 Bytes weekly(ish) podcast on the Utah art community, featuring interviews with artists, writers, performers and curators.
