FRIDAY FACES: Herbert Bayer Art Exhibit Opening

January 10, 2014

The Aspen Institute recently opened an exhibition featuring the work of the late renowned artist Herbert Bayer at the Doerr-Hosier Center’s Resnick Gallery on the Aspen Meadows campus. “The Legacy of Herbert Bayer: Recent Gifts and Loans to the Aspen Institute” showcases a collection of paintings, photography, sculptures, and tapestries by one of the most famous of the Bauhaus-trained artists.

In 1946, the Institute’s founder, Walter Paepcke, commissioned Bayer to design the Institute’s physical structures and philosophical image on the campus. Bayer is also credited with helping to transform Aspen itself, from an abandoned mining town to a high-profile destination.

The photo gallery above captures highlights of the opening night of this ongoing exhibit.
