Flash Back Friday: 1986 Addition

In honor of the reopening of the museum galleries this Sunday after six months of renovations, we are flashing back to the 1986 opening of the newest wing of the Dixon Gallery and Gardens.  You can see in the image the two additions that have been made to the original Dixon residence.  While we didn't add additional square footage to the galleries, we did expand the museum store and create an all new cafe that will open early in 2016!  The Dixon has seen many improvements since its creation almost 40 years ago in 1976, and the recent renovations are no exception.  Make sure to stay in touch with the Dixon as we prepare to celebrate the 40th anniversary in 2016 with all of our past, present and future members.  Now is an exciting time to join the Dixon!
