Event description
MUSCARELLE EXPLORATIONS: 100 YEARS OF BAUHAUS

About this Event

Bauhaus in America

David Brashear, Interim Director, Muscarelle Museum of Art

December 3 at 6 PM

Tucker Hall Theater

After the closure of the Bauhaus by the Nazi's in 1933 for its curriculum based on "degenerate" art, many of its artistic luminaries began to feel stymied by the pressures of an all-controlling government. As the suppression broadened, a number of Bauhaus leaders emigrated to the United States, bringing with them a breadth of modernist design principles. In this lecture, David Brashear will investigate the impact of Walter Gropius, Mies van der Rohe, Marcel Breur, Josef and Anni Albers, and László Moholy-Nagy as they made their presence known in America.

Member sign up begins November 19. Non-member sign up begins November 26.

Free to Members, W&M Students, Faculty, and Staff.
