With a fondness for edgy exhibits, the museum's eclectic collection continues to surprise and delight.. In Short Renowned architect Edward Larabee Barnes designed the iconic building with stately stone curves and modern glass accents. A soaring lobby leads to grand and intimate galleries that house traveling exhibits featuring Botero, Dali and Herb Ritts. The permanent collection is highlighted by the second-floor sculpture terrace and the masterworks of American Impressionism found in the William Glackens Gallery. Classicists and modernists will find intriguing shows that sidestep the more predictable (and conventional) artistic paths carved out by the art world's opinion-makers. Curators at Fort Lauderdale's Museum of Art have made a career of thumbing their noses at expectations, choosing to acquire fascinating local collections with defiantly regional and multicultural themes. The vibrancy of the museum's Contemporary Cuban Collection alone makes this modest institution more than just another stop on the much-hyped museum tours that occasionally pass through town.
