"A great complex for the art lovers! "

This art museum in an extremely modern building complex has over 6000 exhibits of art. That wasn't it, there's an academy, a bookstore and a cafe within the premises. The art in the display was a mixture of contemporary and classics. We love art and exhibitions like these. It was 2 hours well spent.

Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale

The NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale is an art museum in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Originating in 1958 as the Fort Lauderdale Art Center, the museum is located in a 75,000-square-foot modernist building designed by Edward Larrabee Barnes. The current building was constructed in 1986, with a 10,000-square-foot wing added in 2001. The main exhibition area comprises 21,000 square feet ; a sculpture terrace on the second floor adds an additional 2,800 square feet of space. The museum, unlike major museums in nearby Miami, Florida and Palm Beach, Florida, emphasizes contemporary projects.

Among its 6,200 pieces are a significant collection of ceramics by Pablo Picasso, a collection of contemporary Cuban art representing the contributions of more than 125 artists, and North America's largest exhibition of work from the Northern European CoBrA avant-garde movement. The museum's collections are strong in the cultures of South Florida and the Caribbean.

The museum is associated with Nova Southeastern University.
