Hidden treasure uncovered at Gonzaga University
While demolishing the COG student center, crews discovered a 28-foot-by-10-foot mosaic.
The artwork was designed by Richard Ingalls, the university art director in the 1960s.
30,000 pieces of colorful glass depict a scene from Gonzaga’s early years.
The project took Ingalls and a group of volunteers more than 500 hours to create.
The mural covered a wall in the basement of the COG building and was hidden in the 1990s when a Taco Bell opened in the space.
It is being stored until university officials can find a more visible home for it.
