Celebrating the 80th anniversary of Bauhaus in Chicago, in 2017, and in anticipation of the 100th anniversary of the German Bauhaus, in 2019, we present micro exhibitions, Little Pieces of Bauhaus. These exhibitions show works that reference the Bauhaus by a variety of artists, local, national and international.
