Support the Sheldon Museum of Art

Support the Sheldon Museum of Art

The Sheldon Museum of Art was established through the generosity of many Nebraska citizens. The beautiful, landmark building, designed by Philip Johnson, was made possible with gifts from Mary Frances Sheldon and her brother, Adams Bromley Sheldon. Today, the gallery is home to more than 12,000 works of American art in all media. The Sheldon Museum of Art presents 20 exhibitions each year and many public programs. The Sheldon Museum of Art collection is a broad representation of the history of American art, with work from the 18th and 19th centuries and a strong focus on contemporary art. On view in the permanent collection galleries is work from American Impressionism, 19th century landscapes, portraiture, modernism and post-modern work. The renowned outdoor sculpture collection includes 33 works prominently placed throughout the campus.
