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 Student Sheldon Advisory Board (SSAB) serves as the student body voice for Sheldon Museum of Art. With opportunities for leadership, creative exploration, and community, members of SSAB collaborate with staff and peers to enhance student experiences at the museum.

Sheldon strives to bring together students with diverse perspectives from a variety of majors. Membership in SSAB is open to University of Nebraska-Lincoln undergraduate 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.

Take a look at last year’s SSAB Student Acquisition Project.

First Fridays

Start your weekend off with Sheldon First Fridays. On the first Friday of every month Sheldon remains open until 7 p.m. as part of a monthly celebration of art where museums and galleries throughout Lincoln keep their doors open into the evening. Come to explore the galleries, socialize, and experience the collection in a new light. Bring your mask and a friend!

Look at Lunchtime

On the second Thursday of every month at 12:15 p.m. a member of the Sheldon staff or University or Nebraska faculty leads a 15-minute discussion about an artwork on view in the museum. This semester, Look at Lunchtimes are held virtually on Facebook Live @SheldonMuseum.
