NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale

NSU Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale is a premier cultural destination located between Miami and Palm Beach on vibrant Las Olas Boulevard in the heart of downtown Fort Lauderdale’s arts district. The museum’s distinctive modernist building, which opened in 1986, was designed by the renowned architect Edward Larrabee Barnes. Under the direction of its dynamic Director and Chief Curator Bonnie Clearwater, the museum presents outstanding exhibitions and exciting programming ranging from live musical performances to lectures by leading artists and curators. The museum's permanent collections contain more than 6,000 works, including celebrated holdings by the post-war, avant-garde European Cobra artists, the nation’s largest collection of works by American painter William Glackens, and a major collection of works by leading Latin American artists. The museum also maintains a special focus on photography year-round. An active education program is offered through the museum’s acclaimed AutoNation Academy of Art + Design, which provides high-caliber, curriculum-based studio classes for adults, children and teens taught by professional artists. The museum’s 83,000 square-foot building contains 25,000 square feet of exhibition space, the 250-seat Horvitz Auditorium, a bookstore and café.
