Please Note: The Dixon property is a living history museum and not a fine art museum. There are several examples of Dixon artwork throughout the buildings. These are very fine reproductions. The current art market for Dixon paintings causes them to be very rare. People seeking to buy artwork need to be prepared to disclose a budget and expectation for such purchase. We will then make an effort to obtain such. During the winter months all the power and water is turned off. Tours may be available depending on the weather.

Maynard Dixon Country is a gathering of artists, collectors, community, and friends who love art.
The guiding principles of the event are two fold: we want to help artists in America and we want to ensure the viability of historic preservation. We are deeply connected to the art of Maynard Dixon and his contributions to American art. But rather than focusing solely on the beloved paintings of Maynard Dixon, we focus on the "art spirit" and intention of Maynard Dixon, the artist, poet, and whole person. In choosing to remember Dixon this way, we believe his legacy becomes even more meaningful when it is illuminated by the artists who are living and making art in 2018.
Maynard Dixon Country is our major annual fundraising event to support the Thunderbird Foundation for the Arts. In bringing collectors to this event, we help the artists on the forefront of American art continue to thrive, and we fulfill our mission for historic preservation. All art sales from Maynard Dixon Country directly fund the artists as well as the annual operating budget of the Thunderbird Foundation for the Arts and the Maynard Dixon Living History Museum.
