Conversation with Curator: Herbert Bayer 1900 to 1928

Friday, May 4, 2012 - 4:00pm5:00pm
Hamilton Building-Lower Level
Included in general admission.

Join our conversation about Herbert Bayer’s early years with Dr. Gwen Chanzit, curator of modern and contemporary art and the Herbert Bayer Collection and Archive, as we visit Herbert Bayer 1900 to 1928: The Bauhaus and Pre-Bauhaus Years, the first in a chronological series of exhibitions. Bayer was first a student and later a master at the Bauhaus, generally regarded as the most important school of art and design of the 20th century. In Colorado, Bayer is best known as the designer of the Aspen Institute for Humanistic Studies, where he was able to apply the Bauhaus concept of total design. Bayer left the Bauhaus in 1928, but the school gave him principles that would guide his entire career of over 60 years.

Meet at 4 pm on the lower level of the Hamilton Building.
