Paene Insula, 2010

Erin Palmer
(American, born 1957)

Location: Ilwaco High School

ABOUT THE ARTWORK

Erin Shie Palmer created these steel trees to bring the natural environment of coastal Ilwaco into the daily life of the students at Ilwaco Middle-High School. The trees appear to expand beyond the building's frame, reminding students "that they are rooted in the community of Ilwaco and part of larger whole."

This artwork was acquired for the State Art Collection in partnership with Ocean Beach School District.
