In conjunction with Kirkland Museum’s bauhaus centennial, Gwen Chanzit will present a lecture examining herbert bayer’s concept of total design and the trajectory of his impressive career from Germany to Aspen, Colorado. Dr. Chanzit is a herbert bayer scholar, Denver Art Museum Curator Emerita of Modern Art and the Herbert Bayer Collection & Archive and University of Denver professor. Chanzit’s book, from bauhaus to aspen: herbert bayer and modernist design in america, is available for purchase in the Museum Store.

Please note: bayer’s preference for universal typefaces using only lowercase letters has led us to spell his name and the title of the lecture without capital letters.
