The Thunderbird Foundation For The Arts

Founded in 1999 through the Bingham Family Trust, the Thunderbird Foundation for the Arts is a 501(c)3 non-profit foundation whose mission includes the preservation and maintenance of the Maynard Dixon home and property in Mt. Carmel, Utah. Built in 1939 by Dixon and his wife Edith Hamlin, the foundation has been instrumental in having this important historical Utah property placed on the National Register of Historic Places and as such will be included as one of the places to visit on historic Highway 89. Located near the important early Utah settlement of Orderville, the Dixon home and studio is an important destination for visiting artists wishing to partake of the beauty and spirit of Southern Utah where great painters and sculptors, writers and photographers have come for retreats and convivial inspiration for over sixty years.

Programs sponsored by the Thunderbird Foundation include educational tours of Dixon’s Mt. Carmel, Utah property, internships orking artists, workshops and artist retreats, and full day art workshops for people with special needs. The Thunderbird Foundation hosts art shows and events every year so that we may continue these worthwhile programs and to benefit the lives of today’s working artists in America.
