This large "white cube" gallery for special exhibitions is housed in the Quick Center for the Arts.

The Thomas J. Walsh Art Gallery opened its doors in April 1990 under Founding Director and Professor of Art History, Dr. Philip Eliasoph. Its inaugural exhibition was, "Defining Modernism: Art of the 20th Century." In a review by the New York Times, Vivien Raynor wrote: "With this exhibition, the Walsh assumes a missionary role that is not inappropriate for a Jesuit campus, even though the word brought is not of God."
