What do Germaine Greer, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Mother Jones, Jane Austen, Princess Diana, Beryl Markham, Eve Ensler, Hedy Lamarr, and Elizabeth Garrett all have in common? Their portraits, along with those of many other women, are included in a mesmerizing, collage-style mural now on exhibit at Utah State University. “Work in Progress” uses visual portrayals of women who have made a positive impact on social evolution, the arts, and science. Conceived by Jann Haworth, the 40-plus-foot-long mural is a community project, and around 30 members of the university’s faculty and student body proposed names of women distinguished in their field.
Over 150 women were selected and memorialized in stencil portraits by men and women statewide. Afterward, artist Liberty Blake used these portraits to create one large collage. The project was organized by the Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art, and a reproduction of the mural will be exhibited on the lower level of Utah State University’s Merrill-Cazier Library through March 29, 2018.
