Coming home from war is enormously difficult. A new language is required to express the magnitude of war’s effects and consequences. Combat Paper transforms the uniforms of battle to paper and from this transformation comes art. Developed by veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan in San Francisco, the project has now traveled broadly across the United States and the world.


A partnership between Combat Paper Project; UMass Boston, Joiner Institute; Boston Paper Collective; Fort Point Gallery; and Odysseus Project.
