What's the Bauhaus? A German art, design and architecture school founded by Walter Gropius and which was active in Germany from 1919 until 1933. The school emphasized workshop or hands-on training and creative thinking. After its forced closure by the Nazis, some of the members moved to the United States and taught; for example: Gropius ended up at Harvard and Mies van der Rohe in Chicago. Of particular note is the involvement of Anni and Josef Albers at Black Mountain College in North Carolina.  As the centennial of the Bauhaus approaches, more articles are highlighting the central role women artists played in the movement like architect Ise Gropius or fiber artist Anni Albers
