Sheldon Museum of Art Main Content

For University Students

Sheldon Museum of Art offers many opportunities for students across all disciplines to get involved, learn, and have fun.

Sheldon Student Advisory Board

The Sheldon Student Advisory Board (SSAB) is a cross-disciplinary group that serves as the student body voice for Sheldon. With opportunities for leadership, creative exploration, and community, members of the SSAB collaborate with museum staff and peers to enhance and promote student experiences at Sheldon as well as to recommend a work of art for acquisition for the museum's collection.

Membership in the SSAB is open to all University of Nebraska-Lincoln students and previous experience with museums or art is not required.

For more information and to get involved, please contact Erin Hanas, curator of academic engagement, at or 402-472-3541.

First Fridays

On the first Friday of every month Sheldon remains open until 7 pm as part of a monthly celebration of art where museums and galleries throughout Lincoln keep their doors open into the evening.
