The Fairfield University Art Museum (FUAM) is a dynamic space for engagement with the visual arts on the campus of Fairfield University. In its Bellarmine Hall Galleries, FUAM presents a small but choice permanent collection of European and American paintings, drawings, prints and photographs, as well as Asian, African, and Pre-Columbian objects.

Two exhibitions are currently on view: The Artist Collects: Highlights From the James Reed Collection in the Walsh Gallery now through June 8, a celebration of the transformative gift of the James Reed Collection of Old Master, 19th-century, and modern prints to the Fairfield University Art Museum; and Hildreth Meière: The Art of Commerce now through Sept. 21  in the Bellarmine Hall Gallery. Hildreth Meière was a prolific muralist whose commissioned works adorn the walls and ceilings of public buildings from New York to California.
