Photo Slideshow: From Fatigues to Artwork

Members of the UA chapter of Student Veterans of America, along with veterans, converted their retired military uniforms into works of art as part of the Combat Paper Project. The UA chapter hosted papermaking workshops at the UA Book Art and Letterpress Lab. There, the uniforms were transformed into canvases for artwork. Many expressed feelings about their time in the military. A selection of finished pieces were then displayed in the Kachina Lounge at the Student Union Memorial Center.
