Cepress Adorns Symphony for Carnegie Hall

Accessories designed for Seattle Symphony by alumnus Michael Cepress, 2014The Seattle Symphony performed Become Ocean by Pulitzer Prize winner John Luther Adams at Carnegie Hall in New York City on May 6, 2014. For this special occasion, the symphony commissioned accessories from Division of Art alumnus Michael Cepress (MFA 2006). Cepress created silk ties, pocket squares, and scarves in blue and green ocean hues. You can read about Cepress’ experience in a Seattle Times article and in his recent blog post. The post includes links to several other press pieces about the performance and Cepress’ role in this project.

Cepress’ work is also part of an exhibition that opened at the Museum of Contemporary Craft in Portland, OR, on 09 May 2014.
