bayer & bauhaus: how design shaped aspen

Aspen Historical Society

Location: Wheeler/Stallard Museum Times: 11:00 am - 5:00 pm

The exhibit is open Tuesday – Saturday, 11:00AM – 5:00PM.  Please note the exhibit will be closed on Thursday, July 4th.

Aspen Historical Society presents “bayer & bauhaus: how design shaped aspen” opening December 4th as part of Bauhaus 100: Aspen, a community-wide celebration of the centenary of the German art school Bauhaus. This new exhibit delves into the profound, but often unnoticed, influence of Herbert Bayer’s work on Aspen, Colorado. Following his arrival in 1945, Bayer’s Bauhaus ethos and artistic vision began to shape the modern aesthetic and way of life in the Aspen community. He pioneered historic preservation in the area, designed a Bauhaus-inspired campus at the Aspen Institute, influenced local architecture, built innovative earthworks, and helped guide the community’s cultural and philosophic values. Aspen Historical Society’s never-before-exhibited Bayer collection offers a unique view into his extensive works, both fine art and commercial. The exhibit will share a glimpse into Bayer’s lasting influence through preliminary sketches, original prints, textiles, architectural drawings, graphic design works, historical photographs, and more.

Tickets: $10 adult/$8 senior/free for children under 18 and active military personnel (free on the first Saturday of each month as well as Saturday, January 12th for Winterskol).

Return to Simplicity: Bauhaus-inspired Art and Design Exhibition

Colorado Mountain College

Location: Colorado Mountain College – Aspen Campus Times: 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Colorado Mountain College Aspen is joining the yearlong celebration of the founding of the Bauhaus movement with an art opening and gallery talk on June 13. Forty local artists are part of “Return to Simplicity – Bauhaus inspired art + design.”

 

The celebration is particularly personal to longtime local Dick Carter, one of the artists featured at CMC’s exhibit. In 1972, Carter was 26 and an assistant to Bauhaus pioneer Herbert Bayer in his Aspen studio. Attached is an image of his piece titled “Big Red X Mandala.”

The exhibit showcases the influence of Bauhaus on artists who call Aspen and the Roaring Fork Valley home.
