TedWomen 2016: Work in Progress by Jann Haworth

Jann Haworth's community-based mural project, Work in Progress, opened last month at the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art. This project brought together various groups from Salt Lake City and surrounding communities to create stencils of women who were a catalyst for change. Jann Haworth and Liberty Blake then collaged the stencils into seven panels that are designed to be added to for when the show travels around the country. This important project recognizes the crucial roles that women have had throughout history and how they have shaped today's world. 

Since its opening, Work in Progress, has continued to gain notoriety and was selected to be featured at this year's TedWomen: 2016. Jann Haworth traveled to San Francisco last month to join the mural and host another workshop for the TedWomen participants. She had a successful turnout joined by those who are active participants in the strive for equality. The portraits created at the workshop will be added to an additional panel in the months to come. Work in Progress will continue to grow and move across the nation, with its next exhibition being located at the Brigham Young University Museum of Art in Provo, Utah.
