NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale celebrates its 60th anniversary by organizing a 60-year retrospective of American artist Frank Stella. Approximately 300 works including paintings, sculptures and drawings span his incredible career from the late Fifties through the present. “Frank Stella: Experiment and Change” features his exploration of minimalism, such as the black paintings’ geometry, and maximalism of his Moby Dick series. Larger concentric square paintings, 3D printed models and foam-core cut-outs are also displayed through July 8. Hoping to gain more insight into his process, fans further can view ephemera and objects for the first-time; these everyday notes, sketches and maquettes offer a glimpse into his time in the studio and diverse interests. Join museum director and chief curator Bonnie Clearwater for a brunch and tour on December 9.

Art Basel provides serious inspiration in the eyewear department. Miamians will have a new spot to pick up some cool shades as well as optical eyewear when Oliver Peoples opens its second location here in the Miami Design District on Monday. The Los Angeles brand tapped Milan-based Dimore Studio not only to design the chic space (note the charming shelves resembling safety deposit boxes) but two versions of signature frames, the Rockmore and the Scheyer. The firm is no newcomer to collaborations. Throughout its 30-year history, it’s worked with everyone from Berluti to Alain Mikli, the famous Parisian eyewear designer. They commemorate their third decade in the business by reissuing classic frames in an exclusive anniversary collection. To top it off, Spring 2018 styles are also in store.
