Sheldon's exhibitions for the fall semester are:

"Uncommon Likeness: Identity in Flux"

Featuring several works on loan from the private collections of Karen & Robert Duncan and Kathryn & Marc LeBaron, this exhibition presents works by contemporary artists who choose to depict the body as a point of examining mortality, transience, and identity.

"Ron Jude: Lago"

This is the first museum exhibition of a series of color photographs made by Oregon-based artist Ron Jude, who returns to the California-desert landscape of his childhood in search of clues to his own identity.

"Saya Woolfalk's ChimaTEK: Kaleidoscopic Camouflage"

Multimedia artist Saya Woolfalk responds to a work by Alma Thomas in the museum's collection, creating a new, site-specific chapter in a decade-long fictional utopian narrative.
