Lee Littlefield sculptures are here!!!

Lee Littlefield's colorful and playful sculptures are installed and already thrilling each visitor that visits the Dixon property. 

These unexpected bursts of blues, greens, oranges, and pinks can be seen at the entrance, in the gardens, and even on the roof of the Dixon residence. 

The sculptures were installed Thursday and Friday morning using man power from garden staff and Littlefield's handlers. Thursday was very gloomy but the sculptures brightened the day right up! Check out a video of the process here!

Even the truck that transported the sculptures looked bright and fun, and most of the sculptures were not even unwrapped yet.

Littlefield was a narrative painter for thirty years before moving toward sculpture in 1983. Littlefield has said that "the look of both my indoor and outdoor sculptures lies between reality and the Little Shop of Horrors." 

We can't wait for you to visit the Dixon and see these exciting sculptures in person. Littlefield's indoor sculptures will open on April 15 and offer even more bayou inspired colorful creations. 

Don't miss your chance to see Lee Littlefield: Big Texas Bayous in the beautiful setting of the Dixon Gardens. Come by and get inspired!
