Ukraine-Chicago-Bauhaus

My last day in Chicago was treated with a surprise.  I stumbled upon this museum that most tourists would probably overlook.  Ukrainian Institute of Modern Art (UIMA) is currently showing Chicago's Bauhaus Legacy.  After the dissolution of the Berlin Bauhaus by the Nazis in 1933, its continuation was established when Laśzló Moholy-Nagy was invited to form the New Bauhaus in Chicago in 1937.  The exhibition showcases the New Bauhaus/Bauhaus-influenced works from this period and beyond, including treasures from the UIMA's rich collection.
