The Nebraska Art Association (NAA) began in 1900, after the Haydon Art Club, its precursor, changed its name. The NAA became an official organization recognized by the Secretary of State of Nebraska George W. Marsh on December 17, 1902. As a statewide organization, the NAA supported the acquisition of art work, and provided events and educational opportunities. The NAA was instrumental in the creation of the Sheldon Memorial Art Gallery, which was dedicated on May 16, 1963. As of March 2008, the NAA operates as the Sheldon Art Association and continues its support of the Sheldon Museum of Art.

Scope and Content:

The catalogs and brochures are those created by the Nebraska Art Association for exhibitions that took place at the University between 1909 and 1965, just two years after the dedication of the Sheldon Memorial Art Gallery.
