Dreaming big and delivering on a shared vision typically involves a lot of different people working together for a long period of time, especially when their goal is counter to the norm. Such was the case when a small group of arts supporters, including artist Ruth Allan, began envisioning ways to enhance Wenatchee’s riverfront in the mid- to late-1960s.

Chris Rader interviewed Ruth in 2009 for Gathering Our Voice about her role in the early community efforts to cleanup, protect and celebrate the waterfront. Excerpts from the full interview, transcribed by AmeriCorps volunteer Amanda Gott, follow.
