qc_sponsor_photoThe Open VISIONS Forum is a special series designed to "engage the mind." Its mission is to present a broad range of perspectives and interests of the University's students and faculty with the wide general interests of our regional audience. Through an ongoing series of lively and informative lectures, these "public conversations" present: eminent opinion-makers, artists, authors, civic and political commentators and learner contributors to the humanities and sciences.


Art Exhibits & Collections

The Thomas J. Walsh, Jr. Art Gallery, located in the Quick Center features year-round exhibitions of noted artists from around the world along with a wide range of diverse lectures and educational programming.

The Bellarmine Museum of Art, located in Bellarmine Hall, displays a rich and varied collection of paintings, sculpture, and decorative arts objects from the Italian Renaissance and Baroque periods. Also showcased is a range of non-Western art including pre-Columbian vessels, 19th-century South East Asian sculptures and African masks, as well as a variety of Celtic and Medieval objects.
