Building Overview

Opened in 1912 as the home of the Ethical Society of St. Louis, The Sheldon has reigned as one of the city’s most architecturally significant buildings for over 100 years.

Since its construction, The Sheldon has housed great thinkers, creators, artists and leaders, first as the home of the Ethical Society, now as what it has evolved to be: the premier destination for the arts in the St. Louis area and beyond.

We invite you to explore the storied spaces that make us unique.
