Sheldon Memorial Art Gallery, University of Nebraska

Philip Johnson

Side view

Alluding to Fascist architecture, the blank arcades are "classical" but all decoration is eliminated. Like a temple, the gallery is on a raised base.

The front facade and entrance

The 30 foot high entrance lobby with central "bridge" and repeated rear windows echoing the front entrance

Looking from the "bridge" to the entrance and the ceiling with gold-leaf lighting disks


The second floor hallway

The exterior facade belies the interior which actually has 2 stories on each side of the full-height lobby. Gallery space is at each end of this second floor hallway.
