Art can portray the world's most complex subjects: the passion of love, the horrors of war, and the despair of fruit waiting to be eaten. Hold a mirror to nature with today’s Groupon to Dixon Gallery and Gardens.
Dixon Gallery and Gardens saturates the senses with a 2,000-piece museum collection bordered by 17 acres of lush English gardens. An e-membership grants unlimited admission to the grounds as well as a weekly e-newsletter, whose digital format significantly reduces paper-airplane attacks. Behind the museum’s corinthian columns and brick façade, patrons peruse works by French and American impressionists along with rotating exhibitions.
Carved out of the Tennessee woodlands, the adjacent gardens invite strollers to meander down tulip-lined walkways abutted by towering trees. A packed event schedule bursts with performances and educational programs that ensure minds stay sharp enough to pop their own thought balloons.
Dixon Gallery and Gardens
The perfect frame can make a work of art leap off of a wall. For the Dixon Gallery and Gardens, the overall layout frames a 2,000-piece museum with 17 acres of lush English gardens. Tulip-lined walkways, scenic vistas, and the occasional sculpture surround visitors on tours of the Tennessee woodlands, where oaks and hickories climb towards the sky where all the good sunlight is. In total, more than 120 identified species of trees live and breathe within the gardens' level IV arboretum.
Even more sights await visitors behind the museum’s corinthian columns and brick façade. Eight to ten rotating exhibitions a year hang alongside a permanent collection that touches on paper works, sculptures, and paintings by French and American impressionists—from Claude Monet to Mary Cassatt. Beyond these ever-present attractions, the museum also hosts live performances, educational programs, and other special events.
