NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale continues to closely monitor the situation regarding coronavirus (COVID-19). The health and well-being of our visitors, staff and volunteers is our highest priority. Out of caution, we are postponing Museum events scheduled through April 17, 2020.

The following public events have been postponed:

There will be no Free First Thursdays Starry Nights scheduled for the month of April.

NSU Art Museum remains open to the public at this time and maintains regular business hours.

Current steps that we are taking include:

  • Extra measures to ensure the Museum’s facility is clean and safe.
  • High-touch surfaces like doorknobs, door touch plates, door handles, the top of chair backs and armrests, table tops, faucets and light switches are cleaned with a medical grade disinfectant every two hours.
  • Extra hand sanitizer dispensers and signs encouraging hand-washing have been added throughout the Museum.

Nova Southeastern University (of which NSU Art Museum is a division) is taking decisive and informed action to respond to concerns about the coronavirus while ensuring the continuity of our academic and institutional mission. The university remains open and operational with appropriate measures to protect the health of the community.
