Prominent Utah suffragist focus of BYU gallery exhibit

The Education in Zion Gallery at Brigham Young University is now hosting a new exhibit that reflects the heritage and culture of an early Utah pioneer, schoolteacher and suffragist.

The exhibit, which will be exhibited through Dec. 15, includes a replica of a dress owned by Marilla Lucretia Johnson Miller Daniels, an early Utah pioneer whose husband founded Springville and eventually became its mayor. Marilla Daniels lived from 1830 to 1918.

Melissa DeGuire, a BYU theater arts student emphasizing costume design, made the dress with funding from an ORCA grant. ORCA grants are part of a program established by BYU to encourage mentored research at the undergraduate level in all fields of study.

The dress will be donated in March to the Daughters of the Utah Pioneer Museum in Springville. There it will be displayed again before it is donated permanently to the museum’s collection.

The Education in Zion Gallery is located in the Joseph F. Smith Building. Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. On Monday and Wednesday nights, the gallery stays open until 9 p.m. Saturday hours are 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Admission is free.

For more information, contact curator Heather M. Seferovich, (801) 422-3451. Learn more about the gallery at lib.byu.edu/sites/educationinzion/.
