Sheldon Art Association

In May 1888, a group of sixty-seven women and men gathered in Lincoln to form a society of fine arts—the Haydon Art Club, now the Sheldon Art Association. The SAA continues to provide support for the museum's exhibitions and educational programs. Additionally, it gives opportunities for members to deepen their connections with art through events such as member-only exhibition previews.
