Post Office Mural – Camas WA

Description

The post office contains a Section of Fine Arts mural by Douglas Nicholson, Beginning of a New World, 1941, Egg Tempera on Wall.

“A California artist, Nicholson traveled to Washington to complete the mural in person. Approximately 5′ x 13′ in size, the piece highlights the land and its physical and human resources including lumber, dairying, agriculture and fishing. Section administrators in Washington D.C. were not overly impressed with the mural and encouraged Nicholson to make many changes.”
