I have been a member of the Dixon Gallery and Gardens for several years; both the Dixon and the Brooks Museum of Art, another place to enjoy art in Memphis, have been great places to visit when one is in need of art, culture, a lesson in history, or something fun and unique. Every time I visit the Dixon, I always leave with new knowledge as well as more information to conduct further research on a later date. The new exhibit,
Not only is the Dixon known for their lovely art, but also for the gardens. No visit to the Dixon would be complete without a stroll through the areas behind the museum and house. Flowers and plants of every colour as well as statues and larger pieces of art compliment the interior of the Dixon, making the visit a full experience of an appreciation of art. I always find myself taking a long walk through the area; a great place for photographers and those who love to be outdoors.
The exhibit runs from 31 July 2016 through 9 October 2016 - highly recommended to both Memphians and visitors. If you are looking for something to do in Memphis that is not Elvis or BBQ related, check out the Dixon and then the Brooks and later the Metal Museum!
