In accordance with the University’s Covid-19 protocols, which prohibit the public from entering campus, the museum will be closed to outside visitors this fall. While we’re very sorry that we can’t welcome you to our two fall exhibitions, but we hope that you will engage with them virtually and take advantage of our extensive virtual programming.

The Fairfield University Art Museum (FUAM) encompasses galleries for the permanent collection and rotating exhibitions in Bellarmine Hall, and the Walsh Gallery for larger special exhibitions in the Quick Center for the Arts. It is an essential academic and cultural resource that brings original works of art to the Fairfield University community, and to the residents of Fairfield County and beyond. The small but choice permanent collection features European and American paintings, drawings, prints and photographs, as well as a group of Asian, African and Pre-Columbian objects. This is augmented by antiquities and medieval objects on long-term loan from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Yale University Art Gallery, the Worcester Art Museum, and the American Numismatic Society, Asian art on loan from the Columbia University Collection, and European paintings and objects borrowed from private collections. Exhibitions showcase works of art in all media from a broad swathe of time periods and world cultures, ancient to contemporary. FUAM partners with local schools and cultural institutions and serves all audiences through outreach, free admission and free events.
The Museum is temporarily closed to protect against the spread of COVID-19, and has postponed, cancelled, or moved online all public events and programs.
