The Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art at Utah State University will host a talk with renowned artist Jann Haworth on March 1.

The event, “A Conversation with Jann Haworth,” will explore Haworth’s work as a Pop artist, her pioneering experiments in soft sculpture, and her experiences navigating the art world from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in Eccles Business Building Room 215 on USU’s Logan campus. Free to all, this artist talk will highlight the contributions of women artists that are frequently overlooked in art museums.

Jann’s work Biscuit is currently on display in The Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art’s new exhibition, “Women’s Work: New Additions to the NEHMA Collection,” which showcases creations by female artists that have recently entered NEHMA's collection.

Consisting of works of collage, photography, painting, printmaking and sculpture, the exhibition explores women's self-expression and their contributions to the global art scene. It includes pieces by local and international modern and contemporary artists and highlights recent efforts to diversify NEHMA's collection.

NEHMA curator Danielle Stewart, who will lead the conversation with Jann, said: “It is a great privilege to host Haworth at NEHMA. She has spent several decades navigating the art world and has valuable insights into the cultural and political changes of the last 50 years. Haworth was a major figure in UK Pop art and co-designed the cover for the Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. Her piece Biscuit is an important asset to the NEHMA collection.”
