Craftsmanship for the Machine Age. GUEST SPEAKER: Dr. Amy Finstein,
Assistant Professor, Visual Arts, College of the Holy Cross. This year marks the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Bauhaus, the German national school of art, architecture and craft that merged interests in honest functionality with a celebration of the new materials of the machine age. As its teachers and students fled Nazi Germany, they brought their designs to new audiences around the world. This lecture will explore the legacy of key Bauhaus designers in Germany and abroad, including local examples.
