September 27, 2013 – August 3, 2014
Estes Park celebrated the arrival of Swedish artist Birger Sandzén (1871 – 1954) in 1925, when he helped establish and teach for a branch of Denver’s Chapell School of Art. Sandzén was fascinated by the challenges of depicting the beautiful local landscape, and would continue to summer in Estes Park until his death in 1954. Discover how the renowned artist, often referred to as “America’s Van Gogh,” inspired the community of Estes Park artists with his enthusiasm for art enrichment. The temporary exhibit Sandzén in Estes Park will feature paintings and graphics of the mountainscapes for which Sandzén became so well-known.
