Co-presentation with USO of Metropolitan Washington-Baltimore
The Combat Paper/Warrior Writers exhibition and reading is the culminating event of a four-day art-making and writing workshop at the USO Warrior and Family Center in Bethesda. During the workshop, Service Members and Veterans make “combat paper” out of used military uniforms and then write and create art on that paper. At the culminating exhibition in the Mansion at Strathmore, the public is invited to view the artwork and listen to a reading/performance by participants. Previous exhibitions have been held at Lorton Workhouse Arts Center, Washington Artworks, Ratner Museum, and the Art League of Alexandria.
This event is free and open to the public.
We rely on charitable gifts from individuals to sustain and expand our visual and performing arts experiences and arts education programs. Your gift will foster incredible social impact by allowing Strathmore to remain a strong and vibrant resource in your community.
