Wells Ward Chapel Interior


Unfortunately I couldn’t find an artist name for the beautiful artwork that serves as the focal point for the chapel. I would not be surprised if the piece were specifically commissioned for the building since it is so well integrated into the overall design. While visiting with ward members I learned that the rostrum almost met the fate of being remodeled into classrooms, just as the balcony was. Thankfully it was saved. One story stated that the Bishop put his foot down and would not allow this to happen. Another story stated that this was the ward Sis. Hinckley grew up in and she exerted her influence to ultimately save the chapel.
