dc.description.abstract "Park was serious about the Bauhaus approach and tried to enlist one of the Bauhaus founders, Josef Albers. Herta Moselsio recalled writing the letter that was meant to interest Albers in Bennington but by that time he had already accepted an appointment to Black Mountain College. Nevertheless teaching in the Bauhaus mode began at Bennington in February, 1935, with the arrival of Lila Ulrich who had studied with Albers, Mies van der Rohe and Kandinsky, and by the end of the Leigh era Park was convinced that art teaching at Bennington accepted the Bauhaus dictum that form in the modern world emerges from 'material and function rather than from a borrowed historical source'."
