Since its beginning, the history of the Lowe Art Museum has been reflecting a complete commitment to fulfill its mission to serve the University of Miami as a teaching resource. The Lowe Art Museum’s success in fulfilling this mission is confirmed by an extraordinary and ongoing outpouring of support for the museum and its collections. With the gift in 1950 by philanthropists Joe and Emily Lowe, a free-standing museum facility opened to the public in 1952 giving birth to the first art museum in South Florida. Its 17,500-object collection is one of the most important in the southeast, with a particular attention to Renaissance and Baroque, American, Ancient and Native American, Asian art.
