In the Treat Grand Foyer of the new Robert D. Buchanan '44 Alumni House is a mosaic of The University of Maine seal, created by Colorco Ltd., of Merrimack, N.H. Up to 20,000 hand-set porcelain pieces were used to create a mosaic replica that measures 14 feet in diameter.

The image represents classic and contemporary mosaic styles, with tessellated tiles end-to-end and sculpted porcelain pieces forming fine graphic details. The founder of Colorco is Jim Burnard, son of UMaine alumnus Steven Burnard of Wells, Maine, who graduated in 1952.
