#Unload: Guns in the Hands of Artists Exhibition Opening Reception

Mark your calendars for upcoming exhibitions and special programs this September at the Fairfield University Art Museum (FUAM).

The FUAM encompasses galleries for the permanent collection and rotating exhibitions in Bellarmine Hall, and the Walsh Gallery for larger special exhibitions in the Quick Center for the Arts. It is an essential academic and cultural resource that brings original works of art to the Fairfield University community, and to the residents of Fairfield County and beyond.

Exhibitions showcase works of art in all media from a broad swathe of time periods and world cultures, ancient to contemporary. FUAM partners with local schools and cultural institutions, and serves all audiences through outreach, free admission, and free events.

Sept. 13 at 5 p.m.: Opening Night of Liberia, 1931-33 The Collections of Alfred J. Tulk

The exhibition Liberia, 1931-33 The Collections of Alfred J. Tulk will be on view at the FUAM's Bellarmine Hall Galleries from September 14 to December 14, 2018.
