Auditorium Gallery, level 1

The Huntington-Bagley Studio, a photography studio operated by Elfie Huntington and Joseph Bagley in Springville, Utah from 1903 to 1936, advertised, “We go anywhere, anytime, to photograph anything.” With their distinctive lens of love, humor, and bucking of societal conventions, they beautifully documented the people of their time and place. Their photography captured the whimsical, the ironic, and the challenging. They also reveled in the joy and happiness of relationships, capturing mothers and children, and friendships. These beautiful glimpses teach us to take pleasure in the quotidian and aspire to everyday celebration.
