Art at the Intersection of Culture and Community Banking

Writer Michael Vyskocil

At the home of York Traditions Bank’s downtown York branch (opening late summer) at 100 North George Street, windows have turned into mural wonders through the talents of York artist Andrius Polonikas. “It was nice to create work for a bank trying new things and thinking outside the box by bringing arts and color to the streets of York City,” he says.

Each day, artists like Andrius enrich the culture of the York community through their work. And each day, York Traditions Bank enriches businesses and individuals throughout York City and York County through its support of local artists and its dedication to providing solutions to help businesses and individuals achieve growth and prosperity.

Discover how art at the intersection of culture and community allows people and places to flourish as shared by soon-to-be neighbors of York Traditions Bank’s downtown York branch:

“Art — visual or musical — makes any space more vibrant to inhabit. It ensures people continually return to a location for enrichment, entertainment and enjoyment. Downtown York’s embracing of art and culture revitalizes the neighborhood, and York Traditions Bank’s new branch embodies that commitment.”

—Michael Reichman, York Symphony Orchestra General Manager and Chief Operating Officer

“Edgar Degas said, ‘Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.’ Likewise, York Traditions Bank is more than what you see. They go beyond the exterior of customer service and reach deep into the heart of the community. More than merely constructing a location, they are beautifying the cityscape and empowering the community.”

—Attorney Anne E. Zerbe, Shareholder and Employment Law Department Chair, CGA Law Firm

“This art is in line with and captures the energy of what is truly going on in downtown York’s community within the Market District. We’re happy to have York Traditions Bank join the neighborhood.”

—Jeremiah Anderson, President/Co-Owner, Rockfish Public House; Chief Executive Officer/Co-Owner, White Rose Bar & Grill
