It's summer and perfect weather for an afternoon drive through the Kansas countryside. Why not pack a lunch, grab your sketchbook or camera and document the landscape like our featured artist for week 24 of our Kansas sesquicentennial video series, Birger Sandzén (1871-1954).

Born in Blidsberg, Sweden, Sandzén came to Lindsborg, Kansas and taught at Bethany College. "Sandzén is the area's sole representative of Modernism in the early twentieth century, combining the innovations of Vincent Van Gogh with the brilliant coloristic contributions of Matisse and the Fauves."
