The Combat Paper Project

Who & What: The Honors College was one of many organizations on the Texas State campus that sponsored The Combat Paper Project.  The Project's website states

"The Combat Paper Project utilizes art making workshops to assist veterans in reconciling and sharing their personal experiences as well as broadening the traditional narrative surrounding service and the military culture.

Through papermaking workshops veterans use their uniforms worn in combat to create cathartic works of art. The uniforms are cut up, beaten into a pulp and formed into sheets of paper. Veterans use the transformative process of papermaking to reclaim their uniform as art and begin to embrace their experiences in the military."

Where: Throughout the week, there were demonstrations in the Quad from 10:00 am - 1:00 pm.  There were workshops from 2:00 - 6:00 pm in the RFM lobby.  Honors hosted a reception in the Coffee Forum on Thursday, February 24 at 6:00 pm.

When: Monday, February 21 - Friday, February 25, 2011
