Twenty years ago, art had taken on a new form in the small town of Fairfield in Connecticut. The Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts opened its doors to anyone and everyone who had something to express in an artistic fashion. Belonging to the Fairfield University, the students get to take more advantage of the center by letting themselves go and learning various ways to express themselves. On special occasions, artists from all over the country come here to either paint, sing or act for the art lovers of Fairfield. If you consider yourself someone who falls in the aforementioned genre, then a visit to the Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts is recommended. For further details do visit their website.
Located on the campus of Fairfield University, the Bellarmine University of Art houses a magnificent collection of art work and artifacts. Covering Classical, Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque, Celtic, and Asian work in three distinct galleries, the museum spans a total of 2700 square feet (250 square meters). Situated on the lower floor of Bellarmine Hall, an English manor style mansion from the 1920s, the museum building itself is almost as astounding as the pieces on display within it. The Bellarmine Museum of Art is open from 10:00a to 4:00p from Mondays to Fridays during September through May. Admission is free.
