100 Years of Bauhaus Celebration
Oct 14 – Oct 19 all-day
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.
