Reservations for use of Sheldon Museum of Art facilities may be made through the Facilities Coordinator, Lindsey Sullivan at 472-1186 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Sheldon spaces have been used for many events, including receptions, dinners, lectures, concerts, meetings and conferences.
With the rental of any interior space, attendees are invited to view the exhibitions in the open galleries. Sheldon staff-led tours of the exhibitions for attendees at your event are available upon request. Food and drinks are not permitted in the galleries and visitors must follow normal museum rules when viewing the artwork.

- The rental use must be consistent with the role and mission of the Sheldon. The Museum reserves the right to deny any request for use of its facilities.
- Political, fundraising or religious events are not permitted.
