In honor of Memorial Day, historian Tara Tappert offers a guided tour of Veteran Made: Selections from the Combat Paper Project (on view through June 3), which presents works on paper made from military uniforms. Following the tour, Tappert gives a talk documenting the history of the American military’s use of crafts from World War I through the present day and how such projects have helped veterans following separation from service.
