Has always been a delight to visit the museum, the curators do a good job of brining national and international art to our city and keeping it interesting and relevant. Thank you.

If you are not familiar with Ashcan 8 they were artist that brought American art to the world back in the late 1800s early 1900s. William Glackens was one of them and his art is well displayed here and worth seeing it is one of the larger collections on display in the country

This museum offers one of the largest collections of CoBrA art in the USA, along with the largest collection of William Glackens works of art. Truly a beautiful building designed by the renown architect Edward Larabee Barnes.

Wonderful facility. It is a bit smaller than other museums if you've been to Washington D.C. or New York. But it's great for the size that it is. They host wonderful showcases sometimes, Bodies and Mummies were great.

OK--- it's small. And it has the largest CoBrA collection of mid century are in the country. Mostly you'll see traveling shows, or art from local collections. Membership is the way to go here if you visit a couple times a year. Or pay the $18 and enjoy an hour or so wandering through it's two floors. Nice cafe outside... More

Rather small but so is Fort Lauderdale. There are some interesting works and exhibits change frequently enough to keep it fresh.

The Museum of Art in Fort Lauderdale has the largest collection of works by William Glackens and it is a local treasure that many people may miss. Part of this treasure will be traveling this summer to New York and Philadelphia exhibits so our northern friends will get to see what this extraordinary artist is all about. Just take a... More

Always worth visiting, the Museum currently has three exhibitions running, one on photographs by the Civil Rights photographer Bob Adelman, celebrating the 50th anniversary of key Civil Rights legislation in the US, one on the "American Impressionist" painter William Glackens and another on the "Spirit of COBRA", the 1950's innovative post-war art movement in Europe that tried to break new...

Each exhibit at the museum seems to bring me a whole new perspective on the genre or artist or time. Under the new direction of Bonnie Clearwater, it seems even more focused. I live here and insist on seeing each exhibit--hoping to see the opening night, but absolutely ensuring that I get there before the exhibit closes. It is not... More
