Sheldon Museum Art Acquisitions
Like many small museums, the Sheldon Museum has a very limited acquisitions budget. If not for the Rasmuson Foundation Art Aquisition Initiative Fund, purchasing local artwork would be nearly impossible.
Started in 2003, the goal of this fund is to support living, practicing Alaskan artists through museum purchases, to enchance the permanent art collections of Alaskan museums, and to encourage Alaska museums to develop formal collection policies.
