A Message of Solidarity

The Sheldon stands in support of the Asian American community as we grieve the tragic murders that took place in Atlanta this week.

The Sheldon condemns the systematic racism, oppression and increased violence that affect so many of our patrons, students, musicians, artists, staff, partners and the community at large. We believe in the power of the arts to help illuminate, shape and heal what divides us – and offer our support to those working for justice and equity in our community.
