Ernst Schwidder led the art department at Pacific Lutheran University for several decades. His works of art, created to enhance and focus the worship life of congregations from a variety of denominations-primarily Lutheran churches. Ernst’s mahogany carvings, can be found in over 90 worship facilitites around our state, and over 300 locations across the U.S. and Canada.
Three retired Lutheran pastors have begun to document the locations of these art pieces. They have dubbed their research The Schwidder Project. Two of these men, Roger Sylwester and Richard Tietjen, will give a talk on this subject, and the public is invited.
