220 unique cast bronze “pages” are “posted” on four concrete columns in the commons area of the High School, celebrating the importance of paper in both the history of human culture and the town of Camas, a papermaking center for many decades. Students, faculty and staff of the new high school contributed text and drawings for bronze “pages” that reflect noteworthy quotations, scientific diagrams and illustrations, mathematical formulas, recipes, maps, dance steps, football plays, vintage posters, telegrams, musical notation, and much, much more. 105 cast bronze panels depicting tree bark are fastened to the lower portion of the columns, as a reference to the raw material source of paper and to the architect’s intent that the columns read as trees.
