Call for papers:

We invite scholars and students to submit papers on topics related to Maynard Dixon and the worlds he inhabited and painted. Drawing from the largest museum collection of Maynard Dixon’s work, this symposium and its accompanying exhibition seek to expand Dixon’s presence in American art discourse and to examine the real and romanticized components of the western world he loved and helped to create.

Please send an abstract of up to 500 words and a short bio to the symposium organizing committee at by November 1, 2022. We encourage proposals that emphasize unique insights from scholars and artists at all stages of their careers and from a diversity of backgrounds. We plan to publish selected submissions in a forthcoming anthology. Full details on submissions here.
