    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.

    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)
