Artists In Support Of Dix Park

Majestic oaks, great open spaces, Raleigh's skyline inspire; Every day we become more and more a community of the creative classses where the arts and music, education and research, business and technology share a vision for this land that sits between a thriving capitol, and a great land grant university.

To this end, we would like to begin recognizing artists that have both been inspired by the Dix land, and are creating works that are inspiring. Please let us know of other artists inspired by and supporting the preservation of the 306 acres of the Dix Campus as a Destination Park.

This song is told in a futuristic conversation between a woman and her grandchild, about 40 years from now. It speaks of some of the obstacles that Dix Park advocates had to go through to become the destination park it is at the time of the conversation.

Sometimes to see something clearly you have to step away from it... you have to look at it from a distance, or from a different angle. From the Dix lands you can see the Raleigh skyline and get a sense of the city that you don't get from anywhere else. Amid the majestic oaks, or in the great open spaces, or perhaps walking amidst the historic buildings, you can choose to turn your focus outward, or inward. Sometimes it takes a scenic landscape to help us navigate our internal geography and make the connections that ignite the next new idea.
