Tom Wesselmann Draws
(through February 27, 2011)

We are proud to host an exhibition of drawings by Pop artist Tom Wesselmann, which was originally conceived by Wesselmann and his wife, Claire, before the artist’s death in December 2004. Last year, Claire Wesselmann revisited the project with Emilio Steinberger, Senior Director of Haunch of Venison gallery, to bring it to fruition. The exhibition, which spans four and a half decades – from 1959 to 2004 – includes more than one hundred works, many of them large in scale and created from materials not usually associated with drawing, including steel, aluminum, fabric and molded plastic.

In the Glackens Galleries: An Intimate Look at William Glackens and The Eight

In the Glackens Galleries: An Intimate Look at William Glackens and The Eight
(through September 4, 2011)
As the repository of the William Glackens estate, the Museum has among its holdings a large collection of paintings and works on paper by this intriguing turn-of-the-century American artist. Along with fellow painters Robert Henri, Everett Shinn, Ernest Lawson, Maurice Prendergast, Arthur B. Davies, John Sloan and George Luks, Glackens sought to change the face of American art in the first decade of the twentieth century. Those eight artists wanted to paint life the way it was being lived, and in their pursuit of that goal they brought a grittiness to American art that had, until then, been dominated by the society portraits of John Singer Sargent and the picturesque coastal scenes of Winslow Homer. This installation, which remains on view through January 9, 2011, includes paintings from the Museum’s permanent holdings as well as works borrowed from other South Florida collections.

Constructed Reliefs from the Maurice and Sarah Lipschultz Collection
(Ongoing)
Names for this body of work have changed over the decades.  Charles Biederman (1960-2004), one of the best-know artists represented here, used the term Constructionism to describe his work, something related to and yet distinct from the Russian avant-garde art movement of the 1910s and 1920s known as Constructivism.  Later, the term Structurism was used.  By the late 1970s, however, Biederman settled on the simpler term:  New Art.

An Installation by Edouard Duval-Carrié in Commemoration of Haitian Independence
(Ongoing)
This installation from the heart and hands of Edouard Duval-Carrié, with the assistance of students from the Dillard Center for the Arts, bespeaks the artist’s ineradicable connection to the island of his birth.  Knowledgeable about Vodou since childhood, Duval-Carrié incorporates the religion’s theatrical sacred personages as players in his visual dramas of upheaval and transcendence.  Migration out of Haiti, with consequences for the country left behind, is a persistent theme.

Pablo Picasso Ceramics/Carlos Luna Paintings

Pablo Picasso Ceramics/Carlos Luna Paintings
(ongoing)

This installation is a ‘conversation’ between one of the most innovative artists of the twentieth century, Pablo Picasso (1881-1973), and a talented young artist from Cuba, Carlos Luna (born 1969).  Both artists had to leave their native countries in order to develop as artists; Picasso left Spain for France in the beginning of the 20th century; Luna left Cuba for Mexico at the end of that same century.  The two artists share a common heritage in the art of Spain, a passion for art-making, and although they live/d on different continents at different times, they share in the expression of common, universal themes.

About the Museum of Art | Fort Lauderdale

alt

The Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale, founded in 1958, is housed in a building designed by noted American architect Edward Larrabee Barnes and completed in 1986. In 2003, the Museum inaugurated its Studio School, offering courses in painting, drawing, design, and other disciplines taught by professional artists; classrooms are located in the Studio School Annex located in the historic Travel Guard building along the scenic New River in downtown Fort Lauderdale. An active performing arts program, including Inside Out as its resident theater company, is scheduled in the Museum’s 256-seat Horvitz Auditorium. The Museum has now become well known for its exhibitions, which have ranged from Diana: A Celebration to Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs, and for the highly regarded Artist in Residence Program, which broadens the sphere of conversation about contemporary art. The Museum of Art has become one of South Florida’s leading cultural attractions; since 2003, it has broken all South Florida museum records by hosting more than one million visitors. The Museum’s collection of more than six thousand works is international in scope, while strongly reflecting the creative expression of the cultures of South Florida and the Caribbean. The collection includes significant works by the American artist William Glackens, by the artists of the northern European CoBrA movement, and by contemporary Cuban artists. It is the mission of the Museum to explore the broadest spectrum of visual culture at the highest level of quality.

The Museum’s two floors have a total of more than 21,000 square feet of space (not including the Glackens Wing) available for exhibitions. The Norma and William Horvitz Auditorium, with a seating capacity of 256, is a versatile facility that can be used for lectures, concerts, plays, films, and other activities, and the Miriam and Bernard Peck Sculpture Terrace on the second floor offers roughly 2,800 square feet of space for sculpture installations. The auditorium, sculpture terrace, and other Museum facilities can be rented for private functions. The Museum is located at One E. Las Olas Blvd., on the northeast corner of Andrews Avenue and Las Olas Boulevard, at the foot of the Andrews Avenue drawbridge over the New River.
Mission Statement:
In service to the public, the mission of the Museum of Art/Fort Lauderdale is to actively engage diverse audiences in the appreciation of works of art through innovative exhibitions, education programs, publications, and collection activities. International in scope, while reflecting the creative expression of our region, the Museum explores the broadest spectrum of visual culture at the highest level of quality.
