Sheldon Statewide

Exhibitions: Sheldon Statewide

The 27th annual Sheldon Statewide exhibition is Picturing Nebraska.

This exhibition highlights 14 artists in the Sheldon Museum of Art’s permanent collection whose works interpret the experience of life on the Great Plains. Globalization may have eroded the significance of distance and space, but the places in which we live still remain personal and meaningful. Picturing Nebraska explores the ways in which artists have depicted the state and asks viewers to examine its role in their own lives. Early photographs by John Anderson and Solomon Butcher, landscape images by Keith Jacobshagen and Karen Kunc, and photographs by Binh Danh and Wright Morris are included, among other works. A portion of University of Nebraska–Lincoln professor Liz Ingraham’s project Mapping Nebraska is also on view.

The 27th Sheldon Statewide exhibition is made possible by the generous support of the Sheldon Art Association, the Nebraska Arts Council and Nebraska Cultural Endowment, Farmers Mutual Insurance of Nebraska, and James and Rhonda Seacrest.

The Sheldon Statewide program is a division of the Sheldon Museum of Art outreach program and the University of Nebraska–Lincoln. Its mission is to serve Nebraska communities throughout the state by sharing the museum’s outstanding collection of American art. Since its inception in 1987, the program has reached over 275,000 people in 24 Nebraska communities.
