One museum, two spaces. In the Bellarmine Hall Galleries, the Fairfield University Art Museum displays its permanent collection alongside rotating special exhibitions. In the Walsh Gallery, located in the Quick Center for the Arts, the museum presents larger special exhibitions.
The permanent collection features European and American paintings--including a core group of 10 Renaissance and Baroque paintings from the Samuel H. Kress Collection--drawings, prints, photographs, and historic plaster casts as well as artwork from Asia, Africa, and South America. Also on view are works of art on long-term loan from The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Yale University Art Gallery, the Worcester Art Museum, the American Numismatic Society, Columbia University, and private collections.
