In February, 2014 the Registrar & Collections Manager of University Museums at Fairfield University shared with TFAO that, starting with exhibits in 2014, comprehensive materials connected with Thomas J. Walsh, Jr. Art Gallery exhibitions will be available to the public via Digital Commons. Materials may be accessed via Google search by entering keywords from the exhibition name followed by the gallery's name. Depending on the nature of an exhibition, Digital Commons materials may include an exhibition catalogue or brochure, didactic wall panels, extended object labels, checklists, marketing materials, object images, and other related information. TFAO urges users of Digital Commons pages to probe several text blocks for links to exhibition information, as some links may not tie to the full array of information. TFAO will not publish materials concerning the Gallery's exhibitions in the future.

The Quick Center for the Arts at Fairfield University is a multi-faceted facility that opened in 1990. It is situated in a continuously growing community that serves a large and ethnically diverse population, an ideal environment where the Center can grow while meeting the needs of the surrounding community. It houses the 740-seat Kelley Theatre, the 150-seat Lawrence A. Wien Experimental (Black Box) Theatre, and the Thomas J. Walsh, Jr. Art Gallery.

Please visit the Gallery web site for hours and admission fees.
