2023 Division Of Research Annual Report

11 NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale Noble: The NSU Art Museum’s celebrated permanent collection contains more than 7,500 works and is known for its significant collection of Latin American, contemporary art with an emphasis on women, Black and Latinx artists, and African art that spans the 19th to the 21st century. Notable: The NSU Art Museum’s 83,000-square-foot building contains 25,000 square feet of exhibition space, a 256-seat auditorium, and a museum store and cafe. Among its highlights is the country’s largest collection of 19th and early 20th century paintings and drawings by the American realist William Glackens, and the most extensive holding in the United States of works by post-World War II, avant-garde CoBrA (artists from Copenhagen, Brussels, and Amsterdam, who resisted German occupation during World War II and emerged in the war’s wake). Novel: Two scholarly research centers complement the collections: the Dr. Stanley and Pearl Goodman Latin American Art Study Center and the William J. Glackens Study Center. The NSU Art Museum provides access to the highest level of visual artistic expression throughout time and from around the world. Diverse exhibitions, dynamic public programs, and an exceptional collection combine to inspire audience members of all ages, while fostering original research and intellectual inquiry. Situated midway between Miami-Dade and Palm Beach, in the heart of downtown Fort Lauderdale, the NSU Art Museum is the hub of the South Florida art coast. NSU Marine Environmental Education Center Another successful NSU/Broward County partnership is the Marine Environmental Education Center (MEEC) at the historic Carpenter House in Hollywood, Florida. Visitors enjoy hands-on learning, animal encounters that include live turtle feedings, and conservation fun that extends to the sand dunes and ocean’s edge. Interactive marine conservation displays, local art exhibitions, the charms of a historic property, and a gift shop complete the experience. Notable: Programming for school groups offers a curriculum tailored to marine and coastal ecosystems. Novel: In addition to helping visitors explore the wonders of South Florida’s beach ecosystems, the MEEC staff members host sea turtle release events during the summer. This is in collaboration with the Broward County Sea Turtle Conservation Program, which is operated by NSU.
