Made in Dixon is a diverse exhibition that features brilliant creations from the Dixon’s many in-house and outreach programs. This is our fourth Made In Dixon. The first exhibition had only 20 paintings from our Art to Grow program and was installed in the Menke Lounge.
Boy, has this exhibition grown since 2008. We have now included artworks from many of our educational programs including Mini Masters, Kaleidoscope Club, Art Zone, Summer Camp, Spring to Art Camp, Dixon Discoveries, Family Days, Reflections through Art, Exceptional Art and many of our special workshops throughout the year.
Made In Dixon is just a window into what the education department does at the Dixon every year. In 2011, our education staff provided 35,523 educational experiences to people of all ages! This number continues to grow and we are excited and inspired by all of those we reach.
It's not just proud parents and interested youngsters enjoying the over 100 artworks installed this year. Dixon visitors are overwhelmed and delighted to see our young local Memphians highlighted with their work on view in our galleries.
Made In Dixon is our way of thanking the community for their support. Come by and see the show before it closes Sunday, April 8.
