Featuring more than ninety works from Sheldon Museum of Art’s permanent collection as well as several loans, Approaching Landscape considers how artists depict natural, built, and imaginary environments as ways to explore the complex relationships humans have with the places they choose to inhabit.
Sheldon’s entire second floor—including the Kathryn and Marc LeBaron Gallery, Rohman Family Gallery, Sarah Pearson Campbell Gallery, and Woods Family Gallery—will be dedicated to this multifaceted exploration of landscape in visual art.
Together, the collections comprise more than 12,000 artworks in diverse media. The museum's comprehensive collection of American art includes prominent holdings of 19th-century landscape and still life, American Impressionism, early Modernism, geometric abstraction, Abstract Expressionism, pop, minimalism and contemporary art.
Exhibition support is provided by Roseann and Phil Perry, Kathryn and Marc LeBaron, Lisa and Tom Smith, Kristen and Geoff Cline, and Union Bank and Trust. Sheldon Museum of Art's landmark Philip Johnson–designed building houses the collections of the Sheldon Art Association, founded in 1888, and the University of Nebraska.
This exhibition is open to the public through December 31st and is accessible with free admission to the museum.
