Bellarmine Museum Project

To Support: Endowment for programs in and maintenance of a new university art museum.

This Challenge Grant seeks to enhance the teaching of the humanities at Fairfield University by endowing $2.5 million for a new university museum. Fairfield will install and inaugurate an art museum in Bellarmine Hall, our signature building on campus steeped in a rich history of American architectural tradition. The museum will display a collection that focuses on art of the Medieval and Renaissance periods. The Bellarmine Museum Project will promote the centrality of art history within the teaching of the humanities, as well as advance Fairfield University's strategic goal of integrating the curriculum within the context of its Jesuit, Catholic mission. In addition, it fulfills our mission to share with the wider community our resources and special expertise.
