WARRIOR WRITERS: COMBAT PAPER
Head over to Speeder & Earl's coffee shop at 412 Pine St. Burlington and take a close look at Warrior Writers: Combat Paper, an artists' project started by Drew Matott and Drew Cameron of the Green Door Studio with members of the Iraq Veterans Against the War. No pun intended, but it will knock your socks off! All I can say is, Wow!
In a creative twist of the metaphor "beating swords into ploughshares," the series of prints on the show was made from uniforms worn by combat veterans; the artists cut, cooked, and beat the uniforms into paper!
The photo above, on the left, shows one of the paper prints from the exhibition.
Hurry now! GO:LOOK & INWARDLY DIGEST THIS MOVING EXHIBIT!
