Warm Interior of Sheldon Art Galleries
Is Innovation in Museum Appearances
By Karen Costin
In the spring of 1963 the
Sheldon Art Galleries on the
University campus will be
opened to the public.
The Galleries, designed
by Phillip Thomas of New
York, will present a new
idea in art galleries. In
stead of the austere, Greek,
marble museums of the
past, the Galleries will
have a warm, domestic in

The b r o a d-shouldered
man leaned back in his
leather padded chair, tilted
his head sideways a little
and swiveled to a 45 degree
angle behind his desk. The
move was not authoritarian,
but merely relaxed.
His dark eyes and thick
black hair, graying a bit at
the temples, bore some re
semblance to Tyrone Power
as did his 6 foot, 175 lb.
stature. But his actions did
not bear the force his phy
sique implied. His manner
was slow and soft.
The phone rang.
Swiveling around 180 de

table along the wall behind
his desk, he flipped a switch
and greeted his caller with
warm familiarity. A brief
discussion; "yes, I think
you're right on this but I

NU Psychology Professor

A University of Nebraska
professor of psychology, Dr.
Marshall R. Jones, will re

gress of Applied Psychology
in Copenhagen on research
which began 10 years ago with
the testing of 500 volunteer
residents of Syracuse, Neb.
In studying the results, of
the Rorschach (personality)
examinations, Dr. Jones and
his colleagues were espe
cially interested to note that

scoring failed to coincide with
clinical observations and the

floor balconies. Six of these
galleries will exhibit the
permanent art collections.
These collections, part of
which were purchased
through the years by the
Board of Regents, and also
those purchased by the Ne
braska Art Association will
be partially displayed and
partially stored for periods
of three months. The paint

A beautifully furnished
auditorium will be located
on the first floor adjacent
to Sculpture Hall. The
room will be covered with

His report on the research,

in scoring tests given to a
number of normal and patho

by the international congress

program. The congress, Aug

by psychologists from all

The Galleries will also
have a special room for the
meetings of the Nebraska
Art Association. The room
was one of the stipulations
made in the will left by
Frances Sheldon. Miss Shel

founders of the Association
and wanted them to have a
permanent home, Geske
The funds for the build
ing w e r e donated by Fran
ces and Bromley Sheldon to
further the cultural beauty
of the campus.
The funds were given with
another stipulation. There
were to be no classrooms in
the Galleries. It could be
used only for art displays.
According to Leonard
Meyers, head of the con
struction and planning, the
work on the building has
been moving on schedule.
The contract data for
completion of the building
was set at October, 1962.
However, even if the galler
ies are finished then, Geske
said the building will not "be
opened to the public until
April of 1963.
The intervening six
months will be necessary
for moving the paintings
and sculptures from the old
galleries into the Sheldon
Art Gallery. The art objects
in the present galleries will
comfortably fill the new
museum, Geske said.
