Cultural Impact

Spokane’s Fox Theater offers a home to multiple orchestral and choral
music performances by Gonzaga students each year.

Gonzaga’s arts education enriches the community in many ways

  • Low-income elementary students learn the art of dance in after-school programs taught by GU students
  • Theatre Arts produces four main-stage and two readers’ theater performances annually in Magnuson Theatre, with multiple performances taken into the community
  • Gonzaga provides more than 20 public academic/cultural lectures annually
  • The Cowles Rare Book Room in the Foley Center Library houses thousands of rare and old volumes dating from 1484
  • Gonzaga houses the largest public Bing Crosby collection, with several items on loan to the Davenport Hotel
  • Gonzaga operates a summer Chinese Language Camp for Spokane high school students at low cost, thanks to grant funding obtained by the University
  • International, national and local artists, such as GU's Professor Mary Farrell display exhibits in the Jundt Art Museum
