Strange Coupling 2017

Submitted on March 6, 2017 - 10:00am

A student-run Division of Art tradition for over a decade, Strange Coupling bridges the gap between the UW and the greater Seattle art community by pairing students with professional artists for a collaborative project. The work created by these pairings culminates in an event held off-campus at a unique location.

March Events

The kickoff portion of Strange Coupling functions as both an unveiling of the student/artist pairings as well as an auction of applicant, alum, and faculty pieces to raise funds for the project. In the absence of Buy Art this year, Strange Coupling will be your primary opportunity to purchase student work.
