Home A & E SLC's Most Famous Artist

SLC's Most Famous Artist


Utah’s down-home, globally renown pop artist Jann Haworth is receiving the Mayor’s Artist Achievement Award today for her international impact and local commitment to the arts.

If you are unfamiliar with Haworth’s work, you’re probably living under a patio stone in South Jordan. Seriously, you’ve got to get out more. Besides works in museums around the world, including the Utah Museum of Fine Arts, you can see her mural “SLC Pepper,” any time on the wall opposite The Rose coffee shop on 400 West.

“SLC Pepper” is, of course, a self-deprecatory riff on the The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album cover that Haworth helped create back in the olden days of rock.

Unlike Paul McCartney, however, Haworth remains relevant, Last month, she exhibited at the renowned Art Paris: Art Fair in the Grand Palais. (Not bad for a SLC tagger.)


Mayor Jackie Biskupski will present the honor to Haworth at Modern West Fine Art, 177 E. 200 South, SLC at 5 p.m.

Come, hang out and see some of Haworth’s work.
