The Sheldon Museum of Art is an art museum in the city of Lincoln, in the state of Nebraska. Its collection focuses on 19th- and 20th-century art.
The Sheldon Museum of Art was initially known as the University of Nebraska Art Galleries, and was then formerly known as Sheldon Memorial Art Gallery. The museum's name was changed in 2008, along with the support organization that supports the museum, which is now known as the Sheldon Art Association, formerly the Nebraska Art Association.
The Sheldon houses both the Sheldon Art Association collection (founded in 1888 as the Haydon Art Club), and the University of Nebraska collection, initiated in 1929. Together they comprise more than 12,000 works of art in all media.
In the sculpture garden, more than 30 monumental sculptures are exhibited year-round.
