Powerful Paper

Tuesday, October 11th, 2016


The current exhibit in Special Collections presents selections from works produced by three hand papermaking projects, Combat Paper, the People’s Republic of Paper, and Panty Pulping. For Linen Series and Combat Paper, veterans and papermakers transformed military uniforms into paper, and then printed words and images about their experiences as soldiers and veterans on to the sheets. Panty Pulping calls for an end to sexual and domestic violence through creative transformation, and participants in a Panty Pulping workshop made the paper for Unmentionables from their own underwear.

Free and open to the public. For more information, email uvmsc@uvm.edu or call 656-2138.
