[BKARTS] Combat Paper/Book Art Open House at Mills College



Please join us on Tuesday October 14, 2008, at 4:30pm for a community Open House to celebrate the opening of our new studios. The open house will be followed at 5:30 by a reading and performance by Combat Paper/Warrior Writers in Lisser Hall. We will also be answering questions about our new MFA in Book Art & Creative Writing. Details and a link to directions to the Mills College campus follow. Both events are free and open to the public. Parking on campus is always free.

Combat Paper/Warrior Writers
Tuesday, October 14, 2008, 5:30–6:30 pm, Lisser Hall
A collaborative project initiated by Drew Matott and Drew Cameron in conjunction with members of Iraq Veterans Against the War, the Combat Paper Project transforms uniforms of returning veterans into paper. The paper is used to create prints and handmade books under the Warrior Writers imprint, enabling veterans to reclaim their uniforms as art while they reconcile their experiences as soldiers. At this reading and performance, the audience will be invited to cut a uniform from a soldier's body as he discusses social responsibility in time of war. The Combat Paper Portfolio has been exhibited at various venues as part of the Iraq poetry broadside series, Mutanabbi Street Starts Here, and is part of several permanent collections, including the Library of Congress.
 A catered reception will follow the reading in the Heller Room, F.W. Olin Library, sponsored by Mills College Center for the Book.

The Mills College Book Art Department invites you to tour the new facilities at a community  Open House preceding the reading from 4:30 - 5:15pm.  The Book Art facilities are now located in CPM, directly behind the campanile.
Tea and cookies will be served.
