Frontline Paper

*Formerly known as Combat Paper NJ

Exhibit of created works will be displayed on October 4th following the reading in Pollak Theater.

All veterans have a story to tell. For too long, we have lived in a day and age where veterans tend to suppress their experiences – producing a culture of the “silent veteran”. Frontline Paper (formerly known as Combat Paper NJ) is a unique art project that offers artistic tools and professional instruction for all, providing a space to use art and writing to explore experiences, and ultimately share them publicly, all through papermaking.

Frontline Paper’s specialty is the transformative process of making handmade paper from military uniforms. This handmade paper, created through public workshops, provides a platform for veterans and non-veterans to come together to share stories and generate a “new language” and much needed conversations.

Gallery Exhibition – Lewis Mumford: Selections from the Monmouth University Permanent Collection

Lewis Mumford

Selections from the Monmouth University Permanent Collection

The Dimattio Gallery – Upper Level

Lewis Mumford, a dynamic writer, literary and architectural critic, moralist, historian and philosopher. Born in Flushing, NY, on October 19, 1895, Mumford’s extensive contributions to literary scholarship, technology, urban planning, and architecture are internationally renowned for their uncanny social vision and their timely prescience. Lewis Mumford criticized progress based on the intoxicating power of technology and the machine. He argued that the advancement of civilization should be cultivated by humanism, and that technology should never be used to acquire global domination, promote military prowess, or erode individualism. 

Lewis Mumford, however, was no pacifist—he despised fascism and urged America to fight in both World Wars. Like George Orwell, he often accused his liberal contemporaries of being corrupt, and claimed that their “willingness to submit to the Nazis rather than risk the need for using force in opposing them” was nothing short of egregious.

His many prestigious awards include the Medal of Freedom from President Lyndon Johnson, the Presidential Medal of Art and Citation from Ronald Reagan, and the Knight of the British Empire (K.B.E), an honor bestowed on him by Queen Elizabeth II. These achievements are all the more remarkable when we consider that Lewis Mumford did not take an academic degree.
