BAUHAUS IN AMERICA

Speaker: David Brashear, Interim Director, Muscarelle Museum of Art
Muscarelle Museum of Art, VA United States
Free – $5
‣ Register

After the closure of the Bauhaus by the Nazis 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 Breuer, Josef and Anni Albers, and László Moholy-Nagy as they made their presence known in America.

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

Non-Members: $5
