MAYNARD DIXON: SEARCHING FOR A HOME
OCTOBER 28, 2022 - SEPTEMBER 23, 2023
Witness the spirit of the West through the eyes of its iconic artist! In this major retrospective, you'll come to know Maynard Dixon in a whole new light through more than 70 of his paintings and even some of his original poetry!
Dixon (1875-1946) was a true man of the West, from his cowboy boots to his Stetson hat to the scenes he loved to paint. In this new exhibition featuring works from the MOA and other collections across the country, you too will fall in love with the rugged landscapes of the West and the people who called this land home.
Preview the exhibition through the virtual galleries below, each dedicated to one of the major themes of Dixon's work on display in the exhibition: the land, indigenous life, forgotten men, the people, and other people's houses. At the bottom of this page you'll find events, news, and more related to the exhibition.
