100 Years of Bauhaus Celebration

Celebrate the 100-year anniversary of the founding of the Bauhaus in Dessau, Germany.

The famous art school influenced a broad range of disciplines including art, architecture, graphic design, interior design, industrial design, and typography. Events will explore the idea of Bauhaus as an institutional form as it traveled from Germany to institutions in the United States and around the globe, focusing on what today’s university can learn from the Bauhaus’ legacy of interdisciplinary education, embodied learning, and institutional collaboration. All events are free and open to the public.

Doubt thou the stars are fire;
Doubt that the sun doth move;
Doubt truth to be a liar;
But never doubt I love.
Hamlet

Comets, importing change of times and states,
Brandish your crystal tresses in the sky,

And with them scourge the bad revolting stars.
Henry VI

The heavens themselves, the planets, and this center
Observe degree, priority, and place,
Insisture, course, proportion, season, form,
Office, and custom, in all line of order.
Troilus and Cressida
