The Next Picture Show

113 W. 1st St., Dixon, IL 61021


The Next Picture Show (TNPS) is a non-profit fine arts center located in the heart of Dixon. Our goal is to nurture, develop, educate, foster the arts, and galvanize artists and patrons within the community.

Located in the heart of Dixon, TNPS is located in a vintage 1854 building (7,700 sq. feet) that have undergone a complete restoration that recreated the 1898 facade look and retained the original wood floors, tin ceiling, and internal structures where possible. A wide variety of art shows are showcased throughout the year along with exhibiting artists, workshops, classes, and special events.
