Laszlo Moholy-Nagy — Say that again?

The Art Insitute of Chicago has much to share and reveal about the uknown treasures of Chicago’s history and impact on artists of the past. One story from the Chicago Tribune covered the new exhibit “Moholy- Nagy: Future Present” open until January 3rd. No fees are required for the viewing as it is held in the Regenstein Hall with 300 other pieces of artwork created by Hungarian modern artist, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy himself.

Moholy is buried in Graceland Cemetary. He lived in Chicago for almost a decade before losing his ife to Leukemia at the age of 51. He is important to many as they describe how he was able to “think with his hands.” The Beachwood Reporter reports on the Art Insitute of Chicago Exhibition and pulls quotes about Moholy’s impact on art education, fluidity, and technology – where he opened his own school of design which is now a part of the Illinois Institute of Technology. He was a master of the arts.
