To the plains and mountains of America's West came not only waves of pioneers but also immigrants directly from Europe. Swedish painter Birger Sandzén (1871-1954) arrived in Lindsborg at the age of 23 on September 4, 1894, to teach at Bethany College. Plans for three years in America changed to sixty, with fifty-two of those years spent in memorable teaching. He also became regionally, nationally, and internationally recognized. Studies in Stockholm and Paris gave his paintings a vigorous brushstroke and a vibrant palette equal to the beauty and sunlight of America's landscape.
The Birger Sandzén Memorial Art Gallery is located two blocks west.
