György Kepes

György Kepes was a Hungarian-born, New Bauhaus artist who came to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the late 1940s to teach visual design with the Department of Architecture. Gradually, he developed the concept for the Center for Advanced Visual Studies, proposing its existence in the mid-1960s and founding the CAVS in 1967. He retired in 1974 and was succeeded by CAVS Fellow Otto Piene.
