Featuring works ranging from jewelry, photography, and textiles to furniture, monumental sculpture, and urban planning, the show includes pieces created by many instrumental teachers and talented students who shaped the 20th-century history of design and architecture at these schools and highlights the Bauhaus’s continuing legacy in Chicago and around the world.
