Final Weekend: Bauhaus at MoMA

This weekend marks the final days of the Museum of Modern Art's homage to the Bauhaus, the early-20th-century German school and movement that fostered and supported early modernism leaders like Marcel Breuer and Walter Gropius. The MoMA's exhibition Bauhaus 1919-1933: Workshops for Modernity opened on November 8, 2009, and is the museum's first major show featuring the Bauhaus in over 70 years.

The show features over 400 works in mediums that span the broad reach of the school, from paintings and building designs to products and textitles and more. Since the exhibition opened, artists and educators have led workshops to recreate the setting of the influential school in the MoMA's Bauhaus Lab. Catch the last class, Paul Klee and Johannes Itten: Bauhaus Curricula, this Saturday, Sunday, or Monday. Also be sure to drop by the Bauhaus Lounge, where you can rest your feet by taking a seat in a Bauhaus chair or couch and taking in a screening of one of several films about the school and movement being shown in the space.

If you can't make it to the MoMA before the show closes, view our slideshow of selected images from the exhibition.
