Maynard Dixon Property
Artist Retreats in Mt. Carmel, UT
Since 1999, the Thunderbird Foundation for the Arts has been committed to preserving Maynard Dixon's legacy by providing an official artist retreat program. The Dixon home and studio has become an important destination for visiting artists wishing to partake of the beauty and spirit of Southern Utah where great painters and sculptors, writers and photographers have come for retreats and convivial inspiration for more than seventy years. The cabin, bunkhouse and studio is on the National Register of Historic Places in Mt. Carmel, Utah. The buildings on the Mt. Carmel property were built in 1939, and were restored in 1998-1999.
The Foundation encourages emerging, as well as established artists, to apply. Artists are welcome to apply as a group, or individually. It is anticipated that the majority of the applicant's principle areas of interest will be painting, drawing, sculpting and photography. Our program is designed to provide ample working space and inspirational settings where an artist may work free from the distractions and responsibilities of day-to-day life, and to create relationships with other working artists.
