CHADRON – Chadron State College will host a Sheldon Statewide exhibit, The Artist as Muse, in Memorial Hall’s Main Gallery Sept. 2-29. The exhibit includes portraits by artists and of artists from the Sheldon Museum of Art at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. The traveling exhibition is part of an annual program that shares work from the museum’s collection throughout Nebraska.

According to the Sheldon Museum of Art, The Artist as Muse explores the role of the artist as both creator and subject. Each work depicts an artist, doubling the artistic presence, and inspiring questions about personal relationships and creative processes. Whether it is the subject’s spouse, friend, self, or another artist, each creator chose their muse with purpose.

The exhibition features paintings, photographs, and prints by Robert Arneson, Milton Avery, Alexander Brook, Jim Dine, Christopher Felver, Robert Haiko, David Hockney, Dwight Kirsch, George Benjamin Luks, Arnold Newman, Betye Saar, Andy Warhol, and Weegee. It also features portraits of artists including Peggy Bacon, Robert Henri, Pablo Picasso, Jackson Pollock, Man Ray, Andy Warhol, and more.

Gallery hours are Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. or by appointment. Call 308-432-6317 for details.
