DENVER (CBS4)– One of the artists behind the famous album cover “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” has more of her work on display in Denver.

Jann Haworth co-created The Beatles album cover in 1967 with her then-husband Peter Blake.

The album cover features dozens of celebrities, writers and artists. At first, The Beatles didn’t include any women in the Wall of Heroes behind them.

“Peter and I both became aware of the fact that there were no women on the cover and that The Beatles hadn’t chosen any. I can’t say that our choices were very well informed in that age and that time, they were rather trivial or celebrity-based. Had we known more, I think I would have made some more dynamic choices,” said Haworth.

Haworth’s work will be on display at the Emmanuel Art Gallery on the Auraria Campus through Nov. 11.
