Sights to See: NSU Art Museum, Fort Lauderdale, Florida


NSU Art Museum  One E. Las Olas Blvd./SE 2nd Ave., (954) 525-5500.  Tu-Sat 11-5, Sun 12-5.  $12, seniors $8, 13-17 $5.  No pets.  Founded in 1958, this museum became part of Nova Southeastern University--one of the largest private research universities in the United States--in 2008.
Its permanent collection contains the country’s largest collection of 19th- and early 20th-century paintings and drawings by American realist/French Impressionist-inspired William J. Glackens.  Currently, the Frank Stella: Experiment and Change show fills most of the galleries through July 8, 2018.  It is a big show with an entire room devoted to his preliminary drawings and collages, and a mini-theater shows an enlightening interview.  Stella says, “In the end it’s all about geometry.”  Cafe service is available in the lobby.
