The Athenaeum Music & Arts Library is pleased to announce "Bauhaus: A Centennial Celebration" (1919-2019).

Join art historian Victoria Martino for an intellectually stimulating and visually stunning five-week survey celebrating the centenary of the Bauhaus, the most legendary and influential school of art and design in history.
