New York Times: Once Uniforms, They Are Now Works of Art

Through the Combat Paper Project, which was founded by Mr. Matott, 32, and Drew Cameron, 28, an Iraq war veteran, in Burlington, Vt., in 2007, hundreds of veterans of World War II and of the wars in Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan and other conflicts have turned their uniforms into hangable works of art meant to convey something of their experiences.

“The Combat Paper Project: Healing Through Art,” an exhibition that opened at the Newark Public Library on Thursday and will run through June 26, displays some 60 works of art on paper made from former military uniforms.
