This month and next, discover online events — from exhibitions, to lectures, to livestream experiences — at the Fairfield University Art Museum (FUAM). There’s something for everyone to enjoy, to learn, and to connect!

“We have been really energized by the enthusiasm and strong support that audiences are showing for our digital offerings this fall,” said Carey Mack Weber, the Frank and Clara Meditz Executive Director of the museum. “While people have expressed disappointment in not being able to visit the galleries, they have eagerly joined in the experiences and conversations that we have offered.”

Thousands of viewers have tuned in since the FUAM’s first virtual exhibition, Howard Skrill: Monumental Follies, launched in June. In case patrons missed those live events, recordings of lectures and discussions can be found on the museum’s YouTube channel.

The Andrew Forge: Limits of Sight exhibition can be experienced through a film on the museum’s website, and through two upcoming FUAM programs related to these abstract paintings: 

The Andrew Forge: Limits of Sight opening night lecture presented by the exhibition curator, Karen Wilkin, and a gallery talk with Fairfield studio art professor Suzanne Chamlin are also now available on the FUAM's YouTube channel. Both Wilkin and Chamlin personally knew Forge, and were able to share tremendous insight into his work in their presentations.

On a slightly different subject, join Jacky Klein, BBC broadcast personality and former co-host of Art Detectives, on Sunday, October 25 at 3 p.m. as she discusses the history and success of the art collector Peggy Guggenheim. This program is presented in collaboration with the Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts.

Then, join Michelle DiMarzo, PhD, curator of education and academic engagement, for her continuing series – Art in Focus. These intimate sessions offer opportunities for close observing and informal discussion around a single work of art. The next one – on November 5 at 11 a.m. – focuses on a Japanese color woodblock print.

All programs are presented through thequicklive.com – visit the museum’s Eventbrite page to register and for more details.
