There’s no question that Art Center was profoundly influenced by Bauhaus. That’s why this recent New York Times article on the movement and the new MoMA show, Bauhaus 1919-1933: Workshops for Modernity, caught our eye.

Nicolai Ouroussoff writes: “A big surprise is how much of the school’s mission still feels relevant, from the effort to come to terms with mind-bending technological advances to the desire to serve an audience beyond the usual cultural elites. It’s true this mission was pursued with an optimism that would be hard to conjure today, but if the show has a message, it’s that a little naiveté can be productive.”
