About Robert Goldman





Founded in 1999 through the Bingham Family Trust, the Thunderbird Foundation for the Arts is a 501(c)3 non-profit foundation whose mission includes the preservation and maintenance of the Maynard Dixon home and property in Mt. Carmel, Utah. Built in 1939 by Dixon and his wife Edith Hamlin, the foundation has been instrumental in having this important historical Utah property placed on the National Register of Historic Places and as such will be included as one of the places to visit on historic Highway 89. Located near the important early Utah settlement of Orderville, the Dixon home and studio is 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 over sixty years.

Self guided tours are available Monday through Saturday from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM for $10.00 per person. Formal tours of the property are conducted by the docents at $20.00 per person. These tours are by appointment and are may be scheduled daily.

During the winter season the property closes down water and heat. We will only be open for tours weather permitting.
