Mies Birthday Party Celebration: Bauhaus Descendants
Thursday, March 28, 2019 • 5:30–8 p.m.
Location:S. R. Crown Hall (3360 S. State Street, Chicago)
Cost:$55 per person or $125 per person includes a year membership to the Mies van der Rohe Society at the Concrete ($100) level

Join the Miesvan der Rohe Society for this fluid and energetic engagement that will emphasize the centennial of the Bauhaus's founding and its relationship to IIT and its host city, Chicago. Mies, Hilberseimer, and Peterhans were obvious transplants from this institution; however, contemporary artists-in-residence have continued to produce work in this vein. 

Hold the date and plan to celebrate with us! This is where art, architecture, music, and dance intersect—in the Bauhaus tradition.

Partners: American Institute of Architects Chicago, American Institute of Architects students at IIT, Council for Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat, IIT's College of Architecture, National Trust, Society of Architectural Historians, Bortolami Gallery, Ruth Page Foundation, VanderCook College of Music
