A short walk from Las Olas Boulevard, The Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale features more than 6,000 pieces, most of which are contemporary art. The beautiful, modern building designed by Edward Larrabee Barnes gives you a preview of what’s inside. The museum focuses on artists from South Florida and Latin America—in other words, the locals. But that doesn't stop the place from having a wing dedicated to the painter William Glackens (a Northerner) and a collection of ceramics by Pablo Picasso (a Spaniard). The current photo exhibit "Women's World," running until October 6, stands out with images by the likes of Diana Arbus and Annie Leibovitz. On the third Thursday of the month, the museum hosts an Art of Wine and Food Series event, during which experts like sommeliers lecture provide samples for attendees to try.
