The Museum of Fine Arts is housed in a handsome Palladian-style building on the spectacular downtown waterfront. The MFA was founded by Margaret Acheson Stuart and opened to the public in 1965. It is the only place on Florida’s west coast where you can discover 4,500 objects extending from antiquity to the present day, and includes works by such major French artists as Frangonard, Vigee-Lebrun, Corot, Cezanne, Monet, Berthe, Morisot, Gaugin, Renior, and Rodin. The Museum also has significant works by the American artists Thomas Moran, George Inness, Robert Henri, George Bellows, and Georgia O’Keeffe. Native American, African, Asian, and pre-Columbian art are also on view. Galleries are devoted to photography and Steuben Glass, and the MFA had two gardens, one devoted to sculpture.
