    NSU Art Museum’s permanent collection contains more than 7,000 works, including the most celebrated and largest holdings in America by the post-war, avant-garde European Cobra artists, and the largest collection anywhere of works and archival materials by American painter William J. Glackens and his circle, including John Sloan, George Bellows, Maurice Prendergast, and Glackens’ wife Edith Dimock.
