Pavilion & Exhibit Concept


For Immediate Release:

FLUSHING MEADOW N.Y. -- The American housewife -- the Golden Goddess of the Market Place -- will find herself in the spotlight at a major exhibit in the New York World's Fair opening next April 22.

Scott Paper Company, producer of a wide range of products for household and industrial use, says that its exhibit, "The Scott Enchanted Forest," has been designed primarily to pay tribute to the housewife-shoppers "whose confidence in the quality and value of the company's products is a treasured asset."

The exhibit buildings will be located on a 25,000-square-foot site, landscaped and wooded lot to provide visitors with a tranquil respite from the busier sites and sounds of the Fair. Evergreen and deciduous trees, a flowing stream and attractive covered benches for those who wish to pause and rest will surround buildings patterned after the California "mountain lodge" style.

A 50-foot tower of two intersecting cones formed by gold cables and supported by thick, stained wooden beams will symbolize the growth and progress of Scott, of paper, and of the free enterprise system.

Stepping through the doors of the exhibit building itself, visitors will enter another forest, one enchanting in its design and enticing in its welcome. For here, in the woodlands, is the beginning for the tissues and towels and other useful household products of that mysterious and wonderful material, paper.

The tour through the building, scheduled to require 15 minutes or so, will offer a fascinating insight into the complex art of paper making under rigid standards of quality. A number of exhibit and display techniques will be used to portray the steps from tree to finished product. Everyone from school-aged youngsters to their grandparents should find this an interesting and enlightening experience.
