The Bauhaus and HarvardFounded in 1919 in Weimar, Germany, the Bauhaus was the 20th century’s most influential school of art, architecture, and design. A century later, we continue to learn from the rich trove of student exercises, iconic design objects, photographs, textiles, typography, paintings, and archival materials in the Busch-Reisinger Museum’s extensive Bauhaus collection. This symposium is presented in conjunction with the special exhibition The Bauhaus and Harvard, on view from February 8 to July 28, 2019. The symposium will take place in Menschel Hall, Lower Level. Please enter the museums via the entrance on Broadway. Doors will open at 9:30am. Free admission, but seating is limited. Complimentary parking available in the Broadway Garage, 7 Felton Street, Cambridge. For more information, click here.
