Several organizations are collaborating on events from January through August 2019 for “celebrate bauhaus100: aspen,” which commemorates the impact of the Bauhaus art movement on Aspen. The theme “Our Legacy, Our Future/WorkPlay-Create” reflects Aspen’s Bauhaus heritage, primarily as it relates to Herbert Bayer, who was a student and a teacher at the Bauhaus, relocated to Aspen in 1946 to design the Aspen Institute and lived in the community until 1976. Photographer Ferenc Berko also was a Bauhaus student and key in the transformation, photographing for the Aspen Institute, Aspen Music Festival, Aspen Skiing Company and others during the renaissance of modern Aspen.

A few highlights include the Bauhaus Ball on June 6 at the Wheeler Opera House with a Bauhaus-inspired costume contest, Bauhaus films and more; the Aspen Institute Bauhaus Program Seminar on Aug. 4-7; and regularly scheduled tours of the Aspen Institute/ Aspen Meadows Resort campus.

After undergoing several months of renovations, Alohilani Resort Waikiki Beach has revealed its new ballroom. The new space is designed to be sustainable, with energy efficient upgrades like LED lighting, digital signage and sliding windows with low E-glass, to name a few. Environmentally friendly materials such as avocado straws and bamboo stir sticks are available for all meetings and events, and guests are provided with custom refillable water bottles for use at available water stations. 

 

Four years ago, Chicago entrepreneur John Stoops made it his mission to empower people with the strength of improvisational theater both on and off-stage. As an improv guru himself, Stoops left his corporate advertising career of 17 years to establish The Revival: a theater and education company utilizing the art of improv and its underlying skills.
