WLRN coverage: Painting And Passion: Frida And Diego Come To The NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale

In my interview this week with Fort Lauderdale philanthropist Stanley Goodman, he made a simple but salient observation about Latin American art:

“Latin America is more than Cuba.”

That fact still surprises some people in Miami-Dade County. But in Broward County – where Goodman and his wife Pearl are two of South Florida’s most prominent art collectors – it’s a less shocking idea.

Starting tonight, one of South Florida’s most prominent cultural institutions – the NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale – will help remedy our Cuba-centric art inclinations. It’s hosting a sweeping new exhibition that reminds us where Latin America’s modern aesthetic had its first real boom: in Mexico.
