FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA.- NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale announces the appointment of Francie Bishop Good as Chair of its Board of Governors. She succeeds Dr. Stanley Goodman, who will continue to serve on the board’s executive committee.

An artist and leading advocate for the arts, Good has been a member of NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale’s Board of Governors for over 20 years, and served as Co-Chair of the collections committee. Good’s artwork has been exhibited nationally and internationally and she is represented by Mindy Solomon Gallery in Miami. She lives and works in Fort Lauderdale and New York, and is a longtime champion and supporter of women artists.

With her husband David Horvitz, Good established the Fort Lauderdale-based alternative arts space, Girls’ Club, with a mission of educating the public, nurturing careers of female artists and serving as a resource on the contributions of women to the field of contemporary art. She also cofounded the non-profit organization Funding Arts Broward (FAB!).

In 2018, Good and Horvitz filled a major gap in NSU Art Museum’s collection with their promised gift of 100 works by women and multicultural artists from their highly regarded collection. Artists include Cecily Brown, Tracey Emin, Teresita Fernandez, Ana Mendieta, Catherine Opie, Cindy Sherman, Lorna Simpson, Mickalene Thomas, Kara Walker and others.

“Francie is a visionary who understands the tremendous impact that the arts can have in our communities, said Bonnie Clearwater, director and chief curator, NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale. “She has been instrumental to our growth as a vibrant center of culture and education and has also helped advance Fort Lauderdale in the broader cultural landscape. With Francie’s commitment and leadership, we look forward to continuing to expand NSU Art Museum’s reach to new and diverse audiences.”

Good stated, “I am thrilled to take on this new role. Art has always been paramount in my life. It bridges gaps between cultures, elevates our humanity and applauds differences and uniqueness. Museums are the platform to open our minds to accepting these differences.”

NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale has launched a $1 million capital campaign in Francie Bishop Good’s honor, a portion of which will be matched by the David and Francie Horvitz Family Foundation. The funds will further the Museum’s exhibition and education programs and community outreach.
