Michael Cepress (MFA 2006) has partnered with the Bellevue Arts Museum (BAM) to curate an exhibition titled Counter-Couture: Fashioning Identity in the American Counterculture. This show, which runs September 4, 2015, through January 10, 2016, is the result of research that Cepress has been doing for several years. Cepress has also taught for the School or UW certificate programs at least once a year since 2008. He is scheduled to teach a class on “Wearable Art and Fashion” in winter quarter 2016.

Several events are taking place in connection with the BAM exhibition. Some require registration and/or a fee.
