Sheldon Gallery working
to increase student traffic
By Sarah Baker
Editor’s note: Today, we present
the last in a three-part series explor
ing the history, mission and fixture of
the Sheldon Memorial Art Gallery.
The UNL campus bursts at its
seams with art.
“Tom Notebook,” designed by
the world-famous Claes Oldenburg
and Coosje van Bruggen, installed in
1996, sits on die comer of 12th and P
streets, its pages fluttering past stu
dents every day.
“Old Glory,” the 1986 work by
Mark di Suvero, decorates the X
shaped walkway on City Campus in
front of Hamilton Hall with majestic
red steel beams - rumored to contain
every letter of die alphabet
“SANDY: In Defined Space,” a
1967 bronze work by Richard Miller,
sits in front of the Nelle Cochrane
Woods art building, its nude woman
pressing for eternity against die walls
of her confining box.
There is a
arts are for 'other
education curator at the Sheldon
1988 curving two-piece steel tube,
situated to catch shadows between
Andrews and Burnett halls, greets
students on their way to English
classes day after day after day.
But within the walls of the
Sheldon Art Gallery - a building
designed in 1963 by Philip Johnson
lie more than 12,000 pieces of art
that most students have probably
never seen- and maybe never will -
before their stint on campus is over.
