Evergreen Sign Company was selected as the sign vendor for a new state-of-the-art facility setting in motion a new era for Gonzaga’s leadership in the creative arts and the humanities. The Myrtle Woldson Performing Arts Center is a 58,000 square foot facility located on the campus of Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA. The main auditorium configuration holds 750 people and will also feature a 150-seat flexible recital hall space, an interpretive center and learning lab for students and residents of the Spokane region. Gonzaga broke ground on the facility in Spring 2017.
Highlights of the interior and exterior sign package, designed by Studio SC (Seattle):
- Canopy Lettering – Main Entrance: The main entrance will feature dramatically tapered dimensional letters finished in a bronze metallic paint and flush mounted letters on the exterior soffit. The unique 48” taper appropriately adds drama and impact immediately upon entry.
- Exterior Secondary Entry Identification/Monument: More flush mounted reverse pan channel letters will carry the color palette and shine of this non-illuminated signage through to the secondary entry exterior wall and monument sign.
- Interior Directional/Entry ID: Primary interior directional signage will feature russet tones in laser cut acrylic letters and arrows, flush mounted to walls. Secondary directional panels will be fabricated from painted acrylic and cut vinyl lettering, flush mounted to walls.
- Architectural/ADA Code Signage: Acrylic panels will be fabricated with Clear Grade II Braille in a variety of russet tones consistent with the overall color palette. Spacer panels will be painted and affixed to backs before flush mounting to the wall throughout the entire facility.
