Determined to preserve and establish The Sheldon as one of St. Louis’ greatest cultural resources, the non-profit Sheldon Arts Foundation was formed in 1988. The Foundation purchased the building in 1991, and today The Sheldon Arts Foundation is governed by a 45-member Board of Directors. The Sheldon Concert Hall is the site of over 300 events each year, including great jazz, folk and classical music, featuring the world’s finest musicians. Artists such as Dave Brubeck, Cleo Laine, José Carreras, Herbie Hancock, Doc Watson, Joan Baez, Willie Nelson, Julian Bream, Itzhak Perlman and Jessye Norman have recently performed at The Sheldon. In addition, The Sheldon presents Family Concerts, educational programs for schools and Coffee Concerts. The Notes From Home series, featuring St. Louis musicians, is presented weekday evenings. The Sheldon Ballroom, Spiering Room and Art Galleries host workshops and master classes, post-concert receptions, fundraising events, corporate presentations and community meetings.
In 1998, The Sheldon expanded its artistic focus to include six new art galleries in a $5 million dollar expansion project. Improvements included complete wheelchair accessibility, new restrooms, two new lobbies, a sculpture garden, added parking and in 1999, the 500-seat Louis Spiering Room. The Sheldon Art Galleries encompass 7,000 square feet and feature exhibits on photography, architecture, St. Louis artists and collection, jazz history, emerging artists and children’s art.
The Sheldon's renovations continued in 2001 with the installation of five new stained glass windows designed by acclaimed artist Rodney Winfield. His stunning designs, called Theme and Variation, are designed to be seen both during the day and at night.
In the heart of St. Louis’ Grand Center arts district, The Sheldon continues to offer the St. Louis area a wealth of cultural resources in the tradition of its visionary founders. A non-profit organization, The Sheldon relies on public support to carry out its mission: to preserve and operate the historic Sheldon Concert Hall and the Sheldon Art Galleries as an independent cultural institution, to produce and present a diverse array of quality concerts, art exhibits and educational programs of local and national importance, and to provide facilities and services for a wide variety of community organizations.
