About this Exploration:

SandzenOpen Tuesday-Sunday, 1 p.m.-5 p.m.

Birger Sandzén was born in Blidsberg, Sweden, on February 5, 1871. At the age of twenty-three, after having read a book by the founder of Bethany College. Dr. Carl Aaron Swensson, he came to Lindsborg, Kansas, to join the Bethany College faculty, intending to make a two or three years' sojourn in America and Mexico.

Sandzén liked his new home so much that, except for two trips to Mexico and three to Europe, he remained in the United States the rest of his life, most of those sixty years being spent in Lindsborg. He died on June 19, 1954, at the age of eighty-three.

Since 1957, the Birger Sandzén Memorial Gallery has showcased and shared the art of Birger Sandzén and his contemporaries as well as local, regional and nationally recognized guest artists and group exhibitions with the public.
