Art on Fire at the Dixon Art Gallery
All are welcome as the Dixon’s South Lawn is transformed into a fall festival to remember. A roaring bonfire and live music set the tone for a night filled with savory samples from Memphis’ most beloved restaurants, as well as plenty of beer and wine. Pops of entertainment throughout the evening are the finishing touch that makes Art on Fire the hottest night of the year. Proceeds from our silent auction and Hot off the Wall Art Sale directly benefit the Dixon’s art education and outreach programs.
Party goers looking for an extra spark may join us in the "Hot Spot" for an exclusive bourbon tasting and oyster roast, full bar, exclusive access to the Hot Off the Wall Art Sale, and on-site parking among other perks.
Tickets are $75, $250 for admission to the Hot Spot. For tickets, please call (901) 761-5250. For more information, visit www.dixon.org/artonfire.
Must be 21 years of age, or older to attend.
