CRYSTAL LAKE – McHenry County College, Student Veterans of America and Student Life will host the Peace Paper Project from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
The event will take place in the MCC Art Department studios, Rooms A141D and A149 at the college, 8900 Route. 14 in Crystal Lake.
MCC’s Student Senate voted for a grant to support this event in collaboration with TLS Veterans of Lake and McHenry County. The workshops will offer MCC and community veterans the opportunity to create art and tell stories about their experiences.
The Peace Paper Project uses traditional hand papermaking as a means of engaging communities in art practices that bring people together, broadcast their stories, and transform their fibers into meaningful art pieces.
This event is free and open to students and the veterans’ community of McHenry County. Art will be on display in conjunction with the Veterans Day Ceremonies on Nov. 8 at MCC. Registration for this free event is required and 20 spaces are available each day.
