The museum's distinctive modernist building, which opened in 1986, was designed by the renowned architect Edward Larrabee Barnes. NSU Museum of Art'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 significant collection of works by leading Latin American 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 cafe. Its 11,000 square-foot AutoNation Academy of Art + Design is located adjacent to the museum and includes state-of-the-art studios and classrooms.

Open, Airy, Light and Clean building. An ideal place to showcase all of the art. The gift shop is also worth visiting. It has unique and reasonably priced items

“if there is an exhibition you would like to see”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2012

my comments have disappeared again ... no fun repeating yourself. If you are a fan of the artist Pendergast or the art movement COBRA, by all means go. The building is wonderful modern architecture and a great space for art. Otherwise check the schedule and see if what is on display interests you.
