Mission Statement


The mission of the Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts is to create a dynamic and inclusive visual and performing arts center for the whole community that inspires intellectual curiosity, broadens perspectives and transforms the way we see the world and how we interact with one another.


Through high caliber artistic programs that each invite inquiry, experimentation and reflection, the Quick Center for the Arts aims to collaborate with dynamic performers, artists and experts to inspire, engage and involve audience members to enter into conversations with, journey with and even co-create the artistic experience.


As part of a Jesuit institution, Quick Center Programming aims to serve the intellectually hungry and perpetually curious, providing a space for the exploration of remarkable and inspiring performing arts opportunities for the Fairfield University community at large.
