Welcome to the Morton-James Public Library


Kimmel Gallery Exhibition



29th Annual Sheldon Statewide Exhibition

The Romance of the Moon: Science Fiction Invades Art

 Kimmel Gallery - May 10 - June 1


Over the last century and a half, scientific and popular fascination with the moon has spurred numerous missions into outer space, invigorated research in aeronautics technology, inspired new cinematic techniques, and provided fodder for scores of writers and illustrators. It is against this backdrop that the artists in this exhibition boldly approach and inhabit the intersection of art and science.


Sheldon Statewide is made possible by the generous support of the Sheldon Art Association, Nebraska Arts Council, Nebraska Cultural Endowment, Farmers Mutual Insurance of Nebraska, and Rhonda and James Seacrest.


The exhibit is brought to the Morton-James Public Library with funding from the Harry and Grace Moller Endowment Fund.
