About the Museum
Established in 1952, the Lowe Art Museum features Miami's most comprehensive collection of western and non-western art. Designated a "Major Cultural Institution" by the State of Florida in 1987, the museum sits at the heart of the University of Miami. The newest wing, the Myrna and Sheldon Palley Pavilion for Contemporary Glass and Studio Arts, is an incredible addition to the Lowe's galleries of Renaissance and Baroque, Ancient and Native American, African, and Asian art. The Lowe Art Museum is the largest collecting art museum in the South Florida region, and one of the few in Florida with a far-ranging general collection.
