Searching for a Home: Maynard Dixon’s Painting and Poetry

Maynard Dixon is best known for his paintings; what people may not realize, however, is that he was also a poet. Searching for a Home: Painted and Poetic Imagination in the American West looks at both painting and poetry and how they complement each other. The exhibition relies on a handful of loans from significant institutions, but the majority of the art comes from the BYU Museum of Art’s permanent collection, which is the largest in the world. Come see how students can use both poetry and painting to express their sense of place and personal identity!

Registration closes at 5pm on Wednesday, February 15, 2023.
