Annual Report 2022

ARTS AND CULTURE NSU has a long history of cultivating the arts community, with the goal of enriching cultural life and ensuring everyone has access to expand their horizon. The NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale—with its robust, diverse collection and visiting exhibitions— continues to be a premier destination for art and educational programs encompassing all facets of civilization’s visual history. Its exhibits contribute to discussions that address identity, inequalities, and injustices; encourage empathy and compassion; and inspire wonder. In 2022, the museum appointed its first LGBTQ+ ambassador as part of its commitment to being an arts and culture destination for everyone. Since 2018, the museum has organized the annual “A Sense of Pride’’ initiative to respond to issues affecting the LGBTQ+ community and provide free workshops and programming that foster inclusion, acceptance, and understanding. Together with the Alvin Sherman Library, Research, and Information Technology Center’s LGBTQ+ speaker/event series in 2022, the NSU community is making a difference in many people’s lives. x
