Art on Fire 2019

October 19, 7:00-11:00pm 
All are invited (21 and up) to gather on the Dixon’s South Lawn from 7:00 to 11:00pm for a festive fall party with a roaring bonfire, fabulous food, live music, the Hot Off the Wall art sale, a silent auction, and much more. 

Art on Fire is a large fundraising bonfire party that directly supports the Dixon’s education outreach programs. The Dixon is committed to supporting educators in the greater Memphis region and reached over 24,000 students last year via our school outreach program. Further, the Dixon offers art classes to senior groups and individuals with Alzheimer’s along with their caregivers. Art therapy programs are designed for at-risk youth and young people and adults with developmental challenges. This is just a sampling of the Dixon’s education programs, and all are funded through Art on Fire.
