The Dixon's permanent collection started as a gift of twenty-six paintings from our founders, Margaret and Hugo Dixon. 

Through generous gifts, bequests, and museum purchases, the Dixon’s collection has grown to over 2,000 fine art and decorative arts objects. With the addition of the Warda Stevens Stout Collection of eighteenth-century German Porcelain, the Adler Pewter Collection, and many others, the Dixon's permanent collection has expanded to include American art and a world-class collection of decorative art.

**The Dixon’s permanent collection of French paintings will travel to the Munson Williams Proctor Art Institute in Utica, NY during the 2015 renovations and will return at the beginning of 2016. **
