PROVIDENCE – The Providence Preservation Society is hosting a daytrip to Boston and Lincoln, Mass., to see examples of Bauhaus design and architecture.

The visits are timed to coincide with the movement’s centennial. A chartered bus will leave Providence at 9 a.m. on Sunday, July 21. Destinations include the Harvard Art Museums, to visit the Bauhaus and Harvard exhibit, which has 200 works and is the largest collection outside Germany.
