NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale: “Happy” group show. One East Las Olas Blvd.; nsuartmuseum.org. Through July 5,
Throughout history, art has acted as a mirror commentary on the human condition, often shining a cathartic aesthetic light on dark times. “Happy!” takes this a step further, offering up literal and whimsical pieces from prominent artists depicting a happier, brighter world — a perfect elixir to our troubling times. The artworks were made between the mid-20th century and today. They include two early Mark Rothkos (one of which is a children’s celebration) and works by Cory Arcangel, Tracey Emin, Félix González-Torres, Keith Haring, Kenny Scharf, Jeff Koons, Takashi Murakami, Ernesto Neto, and Yoko Ono; along with local favorites FriendsWithYou, Adler Guerrier, Jorge Pantoja and Frances Trombly.
