The Sheldon Museum of Art’s 2013–14 Sheldon Statewide exhibition, “Picturing Nebraska,” will be featured in the Kimmel Gallery January 7- February 5, 2014. The public is invited to view the exhibit free of charge during regular library hours.
The exhibition features works from the Sheldon Museum of Art’s permanent collection. 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 projectMapping Nebraska is also on view.
Sheldon Statewide is an education and exhibition outreach program of the Sheldon Museum of Art, Sheldon Art Association, and University of Nebraska–Lincoln. Since its inception in 1987, the program has reached more than 286,000 people in 24 Nebraska communities. The program is made possible by the generous support of Farmers Mutual Insurance Company of Nebraska, the Nebraska Arts Council, Nebraska Cultural Endowment, Sheldon Art Association, and James and Rhonda Seacrest. The Harry and Grace Moller Library Endowment Fund sponsors the exhibition.
