“Gift of the Artist” and “Ignatius of Loyola”
“Gift of the Artist” features a variety of works personally donated by artists to the University. These works include paintings, prints, drawings, ceramics, sculpture, and photographs. Sharing the gallery (in a separate, dedicated space) are 80 engravings based on work by Peter Paul Rubens (1577-1640) that celebrate the life of St. Ignatius Loyola, founder of the Society of Jesus (Jesuits). These engravings, made in 1609 (the year Ignatius was beatified), were a gift from the Jesuit Community to Gonzaga University in 1985. The engravings create a chronology of the seminal events in Ignatian spirituality, Sept. 14-Dec. 14. Hours are Mondays-Saturdays, 10 a.m.-4 p.m., closed Sundays.
