THE RUTH FELL WANDER COMMUNITY ART WALL
The Ruth Fell Wander Community Art Wall was created in 2002 to showcase novice artwork from local schools and non-profit organizations, as well as to give visibility to the various resources and services offered to the community. Ruth Fell Wander served on First Bank of Highland Park’s Board of Directors from 1987 until 2002. She brought her endless energy, creativity and intelligence to the many committees that she participated on throughout her tenure. Ruth appreciated and loved the arts, and according to friends, her home was an expansive gallery of exciting artwork. Ruth passed away in 2002, and First Bank of Highland Park dedicated the public wall in memory of this outstanding woman who gave generously and thoughtfully to the community.
