The Museum of Modern Art, New York, presented retrospectives of Stella’s work in 1970 and 1987. More recently, a career retrospective of Stella's work was presented by the Whitney Museum of American Art (2015), NSU Fort Lauderdale organized Frank Stella: Experiment and Change (2017) and Frank Stella's Stars: A Survey was presented at The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, CT (2020).
