In partnership with Combat Paper NJ and Warrior Writers, local Service Members in the DC area participate in a week long workshop at the USO Warrior and Family Center. During the workshop, participants will be guided by veteran artists through the process of transforming military uniforms into handmade “Combat Paper.” Through writing and art workshops, participants narrate their individual military experiences through original works of art and writing, using these modalities to bridge the gap between the military and civilian communities. This one-night show will exhibit art from the week and a reading by the participants. The event will also feature artwork by local service members as part of the exhibit: In it Together.

Lorton Workhouse Art Center W-16 – McGuireWoods Gallery is located at 9601 Ox Rd., Lorton, VA. For more information visit http://www.workhousearts.org/event/scape-combat-paper-pop-up-exhibit-and-reading/.
