The Athenaeum Music & Arts Library is pleased to announce Bauhaus: A Centennial Celebration (1919-2019). Join art historian Victoria Martino for an intellectually stimulating and visually stunning five-week survey celebrating the centenary of the Bauhaus, the most legendary and influential school of art and design in history. On April 1, 1919, architect Walter Gropius founded the Bauhaus in Weimar, Germany. The school sought to erase the boundaries between fine and applied art and to reform art education. The lecture series traces the history of the Bauhaus through World War II and beyond. The last lecture in the series is entitled “Legacy: The Legend Lives On.” A number of the members of the Bauhaus faculty emigrated overseas, many to the United States. During the years following the Second World War, the national legacy of the Bauhaus was also revived in Germany.
