The Dixon Gallery and Gardens stands for the plurality of the human experience. We are enriched and inspired in our work and our relations by diverse peoples, ideas, cultures, and traditions. We are committed to diversity in all areas of our work and organization.  - - Dixon Strategic Plan, 2008 - 2015
