Veterans and Service Members Art Exhibition & Spoken Word Performance

August 11, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The Torpedo Factory partners with USO MetroCombat Paper NJWarrior Writers, and Community Building Artworks to host a one-night art exhibition of works made by veterans and service members.

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 at Ft Belvoir. 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, the public is invited to view the artwork and listen to a reading/performance by participants.

There will be a reception for attendees, followed by an Open Mic.

Veterans, service members, friends, and family are all invited to attend this uplifting night.

FREE, all are welcome



Thanks to our partners:
