Ben Joyce Project
Beautification of the Jepson Center Alumni Lobby continues with an opportunity for you to participate in the purchase and installation of an exceptional piece of art commissioned by Ben Joyce ('00) www.benjoyceart.com. Ben's 7' x 14' overview of the Gonzaga Campus begins in Riverfront Park (Clock Tower) and follows the Spokane River ending at Hamilton Avenue (Jack and Dan's).
This "cannot walk away from" $1,500.00 donation* includes your donor name on a plaque beside the artwork and a PENCIL SIGNED & NUMBERED print (limited edition of 50) from one of the four original Ben Joyce pieces shown on this page. For an additional $500.00 you may select a second print.
The Alumni Lobby is in the heart of the Jepson Center, and one of the most visited spaces on Gonzaga's campus. Surrounded by the Wolff Auditorium, Centioli Lounge, Hogan Entrepreneurial Center and the Pohlad Wing, the Lobby is a hub for student gatherings, academic activities, tour groups, and special events. Thus, a perfect place to feature this exquisite piece of art.
Ben Joyce has commissioned art at the Google headquarters in California, who has also commissioned Ben to do an annual exhibit of his work in their California location. He was also just assigned a commission in Las Vegas to create pieces for eighteen transit stations in the city. Ben has also done private commissions for John Travolta and Kelly Preston; Kirk Hammett, lead guitarist of Metallica; Duane and Lola Hagadone, and Thomas Siebel.
All net proceeds benefit student scholarships at Gonzaga University.
