Steffen Thomas StatueThe Steffen Thomas Museum of Art is dedicated to providing art education programs and projects for children and families in rural Northeast and Middle GA.

Using Georgia artist Steffen Thomas's work as examples of creative expression the museum provides opportunities for children to develop their own talents, a deeper understanding of themselves, of their connections to all living things and of their responsibility for preserving the environment.

Steffen Thomas - German-American Expressionist (1906-1990)
Steffen Thomas was born in 1906 in Fürth, Germany. His father, a paintbrush manufacturer, apprenticed him to a stonecutter at the age of 14 after realizing his son wanted to be a sculptor. Steffen applied himself and became an excellent stone carver, spending part of his time working on WWI monuments. He was so gifted that at the age of 17 he was accepted to the School of Applied Arts in Nuremberg and at the age of 19 entered the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich. While at the Academy he established himself as a sculptor of note, was given a studio of his own and awarded “Master” status at the age of 21.

Amenities: Parking, Restrooms, Accessibility for mobility-impaired, and Party Facilities. Free admission to museum.
