On the occasion of the opening of The Whole World a Bauhaus at the Elmhurst Art Museum, Dr. Margret Kentgens-Craig will expand on the legacy of the Bauhaus school and its lasting effects in the United States. Kentgens-Craig is adjunct associate professor of architecture at the NCSU College of Design and former head of the department of archives and collections at the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation in Germany.

The internationally traveling Exhibition The Whole World a Bauhaus celebrates the 100th anniversary of the founding of the legendary German school that revolutionized the parameters of art, the crafts, and technology. Many influential figures involved in the Bauhaus left Germany and spread the school’s lessons internationally. The exhibition is on display starting February 23.
