Meet Our Members: Fairfield University Art Museum

Connecticut Arts Alliance continues a series of posts spotlighting its CAA members. The Membership Program, begun in 2019, joins together arts organizations, artists, and arts patrons throughout Connecticut to collectively raise our voice and increase recognition of the important role the arts play in building and inspiring an equitable, vibrant, and connected Connecticut.


The Fairfield University Art Museum (FUAM) is a dynamic space for engagement with the visual arts on the campus of Fairfield University. It is comprised of the Bellarmine Hall Galleries and the Walsh Gallery in the Quick Center for the Arts. In the Bellarmine Hall Galleries, FUAM presents its small but choice permanent collection of European and American paintings, drawings, prints and photographs, as well as Asian, African and Pre-Columbian objects, and objects on long-term loan from major museums and private collections.

FUAM presents special exhibitions showcasing works of art in all media from a broad swathe of time periods and world cultures, ancient to contemporary, in both galleries. FUAM is an essential academic and cultural resource serving all of its audiences through outreach, free admission, and free events.

While the doors to the Museum are temporarily closed due to COVID-19, our website offers educational programs, videos, exhibition audio tours, and activities to enjoy from your home. (Check out the Watch, Listen & Learn section).

Follow FUAM on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn, and join their email list (email museum@fairfield.edu) to stay connected.

The Connecticut Arts Alliance (CAA) was founded in 2005 as an advocacy organization to ensure that the arts remain central to life in Connecticut. The organization strives to promote and underscore the value of all achievements of the arts industry and all of the ways in which the arts improve daily life for residents of the State. Among its most visible programs are assisting with workshops for the annual Connecticut Arts Day at the Capitol organized by the Connecticut Office of the Arts, and providing advocacy guidance and resources in concert with the Office of the Arts and regional arts service organizations. The organization works to foster public education and awareness of the arts, to increase funding for the arts, and to influence public funding decisions and actions that affect the arts.
