1 month left for "Out of the Kress Vaults" exhibition!

Location: Bellarmine Hall, Bellarmine Hall Galleries

There's only 1 month left to enjoy the exhibition, Out of the Kress Vaults: Women in Sacred Renaissance Painting in our Bellarmine Hall Galleries!

The exhibition explores representations of femininity and virtue in Italian Renaissance paintings of the Virgin Mary, female saints, and nuns. This exhibition is the first in the museum’s history to be co-curated with Fairfield University students. Taking inspiration from two paintings of the Madonna and Child in the museum’s own Samuel H. Kress Collection, students in Dr. Michelle DiMarzo’s art history seminar developed the exhibition by examining Kress collections at other institutions, with an emphasis on works typically held in storage. 

The Bellarmine Hall Galleries are open Tuesday-Saturday 11 a.m.-4 p.m.
