Steffen Thomas Museum of Art
The Steffen Thomas Museum of Art showcases the work of German-American artist, Steffen Thomas, who was born in Fürth in 1906 and passed away in Atlanta in 1990. His wife built the museum near Buckhead in the early 1990s. Thomas was primarily a sculptor, in stone and bronze casting, but later in life he created works in other mediums. He created many notable sculptures including a statue of Governor Eugene Talmadge and the Alabama Memorial at the Vicksburg Civil War battle site. Thomas was an expressionist and all of his art reflected this concept as well as his vision of promoting the "brotherhood of man" ideal.
