The role of railroads in creating modern America is the subject of a new exhibit at the Sheldon Museum of Art at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

The display, called Railroads and the Making of Modern America, runs through May 20. It features 50 works from the Sheldon Museum of Art's permanent collection, as well as a handful of local loans.

The idea is to examine the ways artists captured and shaped the modern ideas made possible by the railroad.

A miniature operating railroad will run in Sheldon's Great Hall during the exhibition. It includes Burlington and Union Pacific O scale model trains from the private collection of James C. Seacrest.

Additional information is available on the museum's website, sheldonartmuseum.org.
