Experience Combat Paper: artworks created by veterans through a dynamic arts initiative located at The Printmaking Center of New Jersey. For too long, we have lived in a day and age where veterans tend to suppress their experiences – producing a culture of the “silent veteran.” Combat Paper provides a platform where veterans can express themselves in a constructive and creative way while making paper from old uniforms and employing a variety of printmaking techniques. Learn more about Combat Paper HERE.

A contribution, in any amount, supporting this installation will ensure that veterans have an opportunity to use art and writing to explore experiences, and ultimately have their voices heard. To make a donation, contact Michelle Pearlstein, Development Associate at
