Bauhaus Revival

October 18, 2017  • Aspen Community Programs

Over the course of a year, from July 2017 to June 2018, the Institute’s Paepcke Gallery will showcase The Poster Art of Herbert Bayer from the collection of H. Kirk Brown and Jill A. Wiltse. Bayer, the famed Bauhaus graphic designer and typographer, moved to Aspen in 1946 as a consultant to Walter Paepcke, a founding leader of both the city of Aspen and the Institute. The exhibit, which is free and open to the public, features a selection of Bayer’s posters from 1947 to 1981, when the artist designed architecture and posters for the local Aspen community.
