Each month, Fort Lauderdale's NSU Art Museum offers free admission to all on the first Thursday of the month. This is always a great event to attend as the art being displayed is breathtaking, not to mention that the museum usually charges $12 admission to view the artwork.
On display right now is the Frank Stella: Experiment and Change exhibit. Stella's career spans over 60 years with a collection of over 300 sculptures, drawings and prints. His pieces are rather large in size, making the viewer feel like an ant while observing his work.
Stella, who is still working as an artist, was awarded the National Medal of the Arts in 2009 and the Lifetime Achievement Award in Contemporary Sculpture in 2011.
I highly suggest attending the next NSU Museum open house which will take place Thursday, May 10th at the NS Art Museum in downtown Fort Lauderdale.
