In our use of the Sgt. Pepper art for this feature, City Weekly would be remiss in not recognizing Sundance resident Jann Haworth. In 1967, Haworth co-designed with then-husband, Peter Blake, the Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper iconic album cover for which they were awarded a Grammy. Thirty years later, she came to Utah on an arts grant to study quilt-making, setting up shop (literally) at Sundance. She founded the Art Shack Studios and Glass Recycling Works. In 2004, Haworth was again the creative force behind the “SLC Pepper,” a civic mural located on 250 S. 400 West in Salt Lake City. The new mural involved more than 30 artists, and, Haworth says, corrects the gender and ethnic biases of the original.

City Weekly did leave some folks out, that’s to be expected. But Sister Dotty Dixon?
The article was on “pioneers” not “hacks.” How about Otto from the Zephyr and the guys who started Squatters? The Tower ? The designer of the artificial heart at the U of U? Larry Miller? Just a few suggestions.

Thank you for including me as an Alternative Pioneer. Plan-B Theatre might as well be my middle name so a lot of people assume I've been there from the beginning. But alas, 'tis not so. I've only been around since 2000--the company was actually founded in 1991 by Tobin Atkinson and Cheryl Ann Cluff. Tobin still had hair, Cheryl hadn't had kids and I was in Minnesota on my mission. There's a play in there somewhere.

Jerry Rapier, Producing Director, Plan-B Theatre Company

I quite enjoyed your 'alternative' people of Utah. However, what about Szugye (the Artist/Painter), who brought a different style of painting to the City of Salt? I'll never forget seeing his work for the first time at the Utah Arts Festival back in 1999--and have been a great admirer ever since. His show at Art Access in 2001 was beautiful and most telling of his world and his struggle with Mental Illness. I would show up year after year hoping he would be at the festival. A refreshing artist who painted what is in his soul.

Radio From Hell has been around for more than 15 years. It's definitely the only reason to ever tune a radio to X96, and it's prettymuch the only thing worth listening to in the entirety of commercial radio in this city.

Having been a student at UVSCC at the time that Michael Moore was scheduled to talk, I had a little insight into the issue. It may have been a freedom of speech issue for some. However, if that was all it was to them, then they only got part of the story. The uproar was more about the student council's corruption with the allocation of funds that were necessary to book Moore in the first place.

Listen, I'm all for free speech, and I'm happy Moore was able to come and talk... however that is not what the whole controversy is about and I think that it must be said that although Vogel probably didn't have anything to do with the controversy, the funds that brought Moore was the issue more than freedom of speech.
