  • Candler School of Theology 1531 Dickey Drive Atlanta, GA, 30322 United States (map)

“Candler School of Theology enjoys an extensive collection of the work of Los Angeles artist John August Swanson. Noted for his finely detailed, brilliantly colored paintings and original prints, Swanson has works displayed in some of the world’s most prestigious venues, including the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History, The Art Institute of Chicago, London’s Tate Gallery, the Vatican Museums’ Collection of Modern Religious Art, and the Biblioteque Nationale in Paris, among others. Candler’s holdings – currently 55 pieces – comprise the largest single collection of Swanson’s art in the world.”

Participation is limited by Candler to 12, so sign up in the hallway to reserve your space. We will carpool from Good Shepherd at 9:00A, eat lunch in Atlanta before the tour, and arrive back in Hayesville around 6:30P.
