Support a Program or Exhibition
The Museum’s international exhibition program, which aims to challenge viewers’ perceptions of the world around them, is overseen by its visionary Director and Chief Curator Bonnie Clearwater, who joined the Museum in 2013. 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. Among its highlights is the country’s largest collection of 19th and early 20th century paintings and drawings by the American realist William Glackens, the most extensive holding in the U.S. of works by post-World War II, avant-garde CoBrA artists (acronym for Copenhagen, Brussels and Amsterdam) who resisted German occupation during World War II and emerged in the war’s wake. The Museum draws from its collection for exhibitions exploring issues that resonate with the South Florida community and contribute to productive discussions that address identity, inequalities, and injustices, encourage empathy and compassion, and inspire wonder. 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 steadfast support of our generous donors allows NSU Art Museum to continue to create innovative and diverse exhibitions, as well as related educational programs.
Corporate Matching Gift Program
Corporate matching gifts are a type of philanthropy in which companies financially match donations that their employees make to nonprofit organizations, like ours. When an employee makes a donation, they’ll request the matching gift from their employer, who then makes their own donation.
If your company has a matching gift program, your donation or membership can go even further to support the Museum’s mission. Gifts from retirees and spouses of employees also may qualify for matching.
