The Walter Gropius Master Artist Program 

Named for renowned Bauhaus architect Walter Gropius, who designed and oversaw the construction of the 1970 addition to Huntington Museum of Art (HMA), the Walter Gropius Master Artist Program celebrates the spirit of the Bauhaus by allowing students to learn from established professionals in a workshop setting.  At the ground-breaking ceremonies for the Gropius addition, Walter Gropius said:


       I ask your permission to stress particularly the aspect of

       workshop education in the gallery which is perhaps less

       obvious in its scope and value to the average person than

       appreciation of art of the past, but ever so much more

       important for the future generations’ creative attitude.


This principle is manifested by the Walter Gropius Master Artist Program, which seeks to present the work of contemporary artists and provide learning opportunities to artists of the next generation.


Bringing world-renowned artists to America’s rural communities since 1992

"I don’t know of another regional museum that makes such an effort to connect the object (the object that curators love to collect, preserve and present to the public) with the process of making art.​"
