When the CCA team was invited to preview the Bauhaus Exhibit at Aspen Meadows, we jumped at the chance. Bauhaus, a radical 20th century art school in Germany, came to Colorado when one of its star students, architect Herbert Bayer, moved to Aspen in 1946. Bayer, who lived in Aspen for nearly three decades, restored buildings, designed homes, and created poster art to invite skiers to the then sleepy mountain town.
The Bauhaus Exhibit offers walking tours, exhibitions, gallery shows, talks, art workshops, musical performances and pays homage the the school––and Bayer’s––impact on our town. The year long exhibit starts Sunday, August 4. To see a list of events, click here. To read more about the Bayer and Bauhaus, click here.
