Dixon Gallery and Gardens

Statue in rear garden, Dixon Gallery and Gardens.

The Dixon is one of my favorite spots in Memphis, whether for the exquisite art in the gallery, or the lovely gardens and extensive winding pathways outside. Dixon has a permanent collection of paintings by French and American Impressionists, and also wonderful collections on loan, including the upcoming exhibit of the works of David Macaulay. They also have a very popular outdoor concert series on the expansive rear lawn each spring and summer.
