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).

A Total Work of Art: Bauhaus-Bayer-Aspen Exhibition

The Aspen Institute

Location: Resnick Gallery, Doerr-Hosier Center Times: 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Curated by Bernard Jazzar, A Total Work of Art: Bauhaus-Bayer-Aspen presents an overview of the Bauhaus, highlighting Herbert Bayer’s contribution as a student and later as a teacher from 1921-1928. It explores the school’s impact on Bayer’s development as a “total artist” working in multiple fields, which were all ultimately enlisted in the design of the Aspen Institute’s campus. Jazzar concludes the exhibition with an homage to the campus, arguably Bayer’s greatest legacy as a true manifestation of the Bauhaus mission: uniting all artistic disciplines to create a total work of art.

Hours are 9:00am-5:00pm Monday through Friday, but are subject to change for special events.  Call 970.925.7010 for more information.

Bauhaus 1919-1928 Exhibition

The Aspen Institute

Location: Paepcke Gallery Times: 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

In the Paepcke Gallery, Bernard Jazzar, curator of the Lynda and Stewart Resnick Collection, examines the Museum of Modern Art’s (MoMA) 1938 exhibition entitled Bauhaus 1919-1928. Although not the first presentation of Bauhaus material in the United States, it was the most extensive and most significant and a true example of Herbert Bayer’s innovative exhibit design. The enlarged photographs presented in the gallery, provided by MoMA, give a general impression of the exhibition and insight into Bayer’s unusual approach to exhibition design.

Hours are 9:00am-5:00pm Monday through Friday, but are subject to change for special events.  Call 970.925.7010 for more information.
