Time Out says

Germany's famed Bauhaus art and design school only existed for a mere 14 years (1919 through 1933), but the influence of the institution's holistic approach to creation still resonates in contemporary art, graphic designs and architecture. "The Whole World a Bauhaus" celebrates the 100th anniversary of the school's founding, exploring the output of its students and faculty through an exhibition that includes everything from a ceramic coffee pot produced in a Bauhaus workshop to vintage printed publications that still exude a sense of modernity. After gazing at the artifacts, visitors can walk next door to the McCormick House—a modular structure that was designed by former Bauhaus director Ludwig Mies van der Rohe—or explore the original Bauhaus school through a virtual reality experience. It's the exhibit's only U.S. engagement, so it's well worth a trip to Elmhurst.
