In downtown Albuquerque this Friday, April 7, OffCenter Community Arts Project is hosting yet another truly inspirational gallery opening. This time around, a project called Fatigues to Flags: Transformational Papermaking by Six Female Veterans takes center stage. Really, the name says it all—here female veterans have used discarded fatigues to create prayer flags and papers. The opening, which will be held from 6-8pm promises to be an example of edification through art. (Maggie Grimason)
