Bauhaus Centennial <p>2019 marks 100 years since the opening of the Bauhaus school in Weimar, Germany. To mark this anniversary, Kirkland Museum is highlighting objects from our permanent collection created by designers who were once teachers or students at the famous art and design school, including Marcel Breuer, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Marianne Brandt. The Bauhaus school was only in operation for 14 years, from 1919-1933, before pressure by the Nazis forced its closure and the resulting emigration of the staff spread its influence worldwide. The Bauhaus connection to is celebrated through the work of two Bauhaus artists who later worked in Colorado: herbert bayer and Werner Drewes, each well represented at Kirkland Museum.</p> <p>While work by Bauhaus designers is always shown at Kirkland Museum, this expanded display will be on view through December 31, 2019.</p> 1201 Bannock St. Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center
