For over three decades, the Dixon has been a significant source of cultural inspiration in the Mid-South. Support for the Dixon in addition to membership contributions is central to the continuation of quality programs which provide enrichment to thousands of visitors each year. Nearly every aspect of Dixon programming is supported by donations from individuals, foundations and corporations. See how you can make a difference.

The Dixon funds its exhibitions and programs differently than other museums in the area. The Dixon does not receive financial support from city, state or federal sources. The Dixon is your museum, and it is completely funded with private dollars received from members and visitors like you. Thank you for supporting the Dixon!
