In these anxious and uncertain times, where better to seek solace than in the performing and fine arts? At the Fairfield University Art Museum and the Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts, we have options for you and your family to experience world-class programming from the comfort of your homes.

Online at the Fairfield University Art Museum...

Whether your art interests lie in Baroque Rome or in contemporary Cuban art, the Fairfield University Art Museum’s "Watch and Listen" page has got you covered! Catch up on stimulating lectures by renowned scholars and artists, or download our Cuseum app to experience audio tours for all of the museum’s current and past exhibitions. 

Also, on April 2, the museum will post a video of the lecture, “The Art of Black Mobilization: Afro-Latin American Artists, History and Racial Justice" by Alejandro de la Fuente, PhD, the Robert Woods Bliss Professor of Latin American History and Economics and Professor of African and African American Studies at Harvard University. The museum will be collecting patrons' questions for Dr. de la Fuente between April 2 and April 5, and posting the answers on its Facebook and Instagram accounts the following week. Watch the lecture and email your questions to museum@fairfield.edu.

And on Social Media at the Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts...

Now, more than ever, it's time to follow the Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts @FairfieldQuick on social media. While live performances at the Quick Center have been canceled through March 29, the staff at the Quick has begun posting video performances on Instagram and  Facebook that are guaranteed to make you feel a sense of connectedness, no matter where you are viewing from. Check out their latest post — a dance-film by Exquisite Corps, directed by Mitchell Rose Films — a wonderful reminder of how beautifully the arts bring people together.

If you currently hold tickets to a canceled March 2020 performance, please contact the Quick Center Box Office at (203) 254-4010 or by email at boxoffice@quickcenter.com. You will be offered the following options as a ticket holder:

  • You may donate your ticket back to the Quick Center, if the ticket was purchased after January 1, 2020.
  • You may request a refund.
