The Bellarmine Museum of Art, which was inaugurated in October 2010, boasts a growing collection of paintings, sculptures, works on paper and decorative art objects. The museum is housed in Fairfield University's signature building - Bellarmine Hall - and is conveniently located mid-way between Manhattan and New Haven, CT.
Fire and Earth: Native American Pottery from New Mexican Pueblos - Featuring more than two dozen potted vessels from close to a dozen pueblos in New Mexico, this show explores not only the formal values of these evocative objects but also their cultural and historical contexts.
The museum's Permanent Collection, which includes 10 paintings from the Samuel H. Kress collection, 38 plaster casts after ancient Greek and Roman exemplars and 20 objects on loan from the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Department of Medieval Art and the Cloisters, will also be on view at that time.
