Ball State University Celebrates “Masters of Modern: The Bauhaus, Mies and Shu” Exhibition

Exhibit explores the influence of Bauhaus greats in the Modernist movement.

New York, Ny., February 25, 2020—From January 24 to March 6, Ball State University will host “Masters of Modern: The Bauhaus, Mies and Shu” at the College of Architecture and Planning (CAP) Gallery. The exhibition, conceived by Knoll in partnership with CAP, celebrates the centennial anniversary of the Bauhaus (1919-1933) and highlights Bauhaus alumni who had a connection to Florence Knoll. The exhibit focuses on Walter Gropius, Marcel Breuer, Anni Albers and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, all of whom have had a lasting impact on Modernist architecture, furniture and design. In keeping with Florence Knoll’s philosophy of total design, the “Masters of Modern” exhibit encapsulates the varying ways design is created, be it through textiles from Anni Albers or furniture inspired by bicycles from Marcel Breuer.
