Women’s Work: The Forgotten Women of the BauhausZoom discussion on January 19, at 6pm. Register here: https://calendar.libraryweb.org/event/8554382

This discussion will be given by, Marjorie Crum, Associate Professor of Design
Monroe Community College

Learn about talented women who attended the German Art School called The Bauhaus believing in its founding manifesto, “…any person of good repute could attend based on his or her talent without regard to age or sex.”

They out-numbered male students and quickly learned they were limited to what program directors deemed women’s work—weaving and ceramics. Physically demanding work like sculpture, furniture design, graphic design, and metal work were unsuitable for women.

Meet the women, see their work; some is still produced today. Come away with more knowledge about the Bauhaus and what resources can be found at the Central Library.
