The Glackens/ Renoir show was fantastic. Beautiful pieces and nor normally seen in’big’ Exhibitions. Especially true of the Renoir pieces. The connection of the Renoir effect on Glackens is clearly shown. The curators did a great job. Highly recomm7.

The exhibition is thoughtfully curated and the space itself is beautiful. I loved bringing the kids here to 'Meet the Masters' on their Free First Thursdays: Starry Nights. They have art workshops, free admission and the 2-for-1 drinks didn't hurt either. Will definitely return!

I had been to NSU Art Museum once before and enjoyed it but wouldn't have rushed back except that they had a special Frank Stella exhibit which was fabulous! I would definitely keep an eye out for special exhibits!

We have gone to this museum for many years and especially enjoyed the traveling exhibits such as Princess Diana and the Titanic ones. The Glacken paintings were always pleasing as well. These are gone and the current exhibit, "Remember to React" is very disappointing. It...More
