The Combat Paper/Warrior Writers exhibition and reading is the culminating event of a four-day art-making and writing workshop taking place at the USO Warrior and Family Center, Bethesda from 6/5-6/8. During the workshop Service Members and Veterans will make “combat paper” out of used military uniforms and create art and writing on that paper. At the culminating exhibit, members of the public are invited to view the artwork and listen to a reading/performance of original writing by participants. Previous exhibitions have been held at Lorton Workhouse Arts Center, Washington Artworks, Ratner Museum and Art League of Alexandria.
