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.

"So keep fightin' for freedom and justice, beloveds, but don't you forget to have fun doin' it. Lord, let your laughter ring forth. Be outrageous, ridicule the fraidy-cats, rejoice in all the oddities that freedom can produce. And when you get through kickin' ass and celebratin' the sheer joy of a good fight, be sure to tell those who come after how much fun it was." - Molly Ivins 1944-2007
