Bauhaus Evenings: Time Travel Tuesdays | Aspen’s Characters: Conversations with Herbert Bayer & Fabi Benedict

Location: Wheeler Opera House Lobby Times: 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM

History scholars and performers Mike Monroney and Jane Click will present Chautauqua-style character performances of siblings in-law, Herbert Bayer and Fabi Benedict. Bauhaus artist Hebert Bayer came to Aspen in 1945 with his wife Joella. Joella’s sister Fabi soon followed and married Fritz Benedict. In honor of the new AHS “bayer & bauhaus” exhibit, the conversation-style museum theatre performance will explore Bayer’s fascination with and relationship with Aspen. Fabi, a force in her own right, displays the spirit of individualism and creativity that are the very essence of the Bauhaus. This special Aspen Historical Society program is part of Bauhaus 100: Aspen, the community-wide centennial celebrations of the Bauhaus school.
