11/15/06: Maynard Dixon - To the Desert Again

Salt Lake City, UT – In the early 20th century, painter Maynard Dixon used a modernist style to depict the endless skies and towering mesas of the American West. In a new documentary from KUED Channel 7, producer Nancy Green profiles this authentic, iconoclastic, self-created individual. Doug talks to Nancy, along with Dixon's son Daniel and others about the heart and spirit of the West, as seen through Maynard Dixon's art, poetry and social conscience.

Maynard Dixon: To the Desert Again premieres November 22nd at 8:00 p.m. on KUED Channel 7.
