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.

The Reception Center at Aspen Meadows Resort on the Aspen Institute campus not only has a new look, the iconic Bauhaus-style structure has a new name. The Walter Isaacson Center was unveiled in June 2018 after a 10-month, $13 million renovation. The original Reception Center, designed by Herbert Bayer and opened in 1958, is now dedicated to Walter Isaacson, who served as president and CEO of the Aspen Institute from 2003 to 2018.
