Bailey Rigby, Claire, from I Was Meant to Make a Garden of This Land.


Alumna Bailey Rigby (BFA ‘23) is featured in this week’s edition of Utah State Today.  The piece, USU Grad Bailey Rigby Earns Acclaim for Research-Based Storytelling Through Photography, highlights Rigby’s creative journey and professional successes following graduation.

Bailey serves as a gallerist at Salt Lake City’s Modern West, and she is currently at work on a photographic series titled, I Was Meant to Make a Garden of This Land. The work intertwines opposing storylines of religious pilgrimage and faith crises within The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and has been recently featured in 15 Bytes Magazine, Juxtapoz Magazine, and Float Magazine. Selections from the series are currently on view in Modern West’s Summer Salon and USU’s Annual Local Artist Exhibition.
