With the long-awaited public opening of the Bellarmine Museum of Art scheduled for October 25, Fairfield University in Connecticut introduces a permanent sanctuary for its growing art collection and future exhibitions. Museum hours will be Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., while the University is in session.
The museum, built at a cost of $3.2 million, will be a dynamic new center of learning for all of its constituencies, including students of all ages and stages, art professionals and members of the general public. The Bellarmine also maintains collegial ties with the larger museum community, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art/the Cloisters Museum and the Acropolis Museum in Athens. The loans and gifts that these, and other, institutions have made to the Museum have enhanced its core permanent collection, facilitating a remarkable breadth of display for a museum of the Bellarmine’s size.
