Nova Southeastern University’s AutoNation Academy of Art and Design is dedicated to meeting the needs of each creative spirit and providing a learning culture that supports individual development in the visual arts and design. This academy is an active education program offered as part of the impressive 83,000 SF Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale, which is also a division of NSU. Thornton was selected to work on the Academy of Art and Design in order to bring its look up to the modern and respected standard that its reputation deserves. Once used as a movie theater, this historic 40-year old building was renovated by Thornton and completed on time and on budget.
