Lowe Art Museum

Enrichment unbound

Creativity fuels innovation, collaboration, and human progress. There is no better place to support the advancement of future-forward, interdisciplinary, cross-curricular experiences than an institution like the University of Miami’s Lowe Art Museum.

Brighter arts

Aiming for the stars

The Lowe is on an excitingupward trajectory, standing on the threshold of a bright future as a nationally acclaimed academic art museum.

Reimagining the 21st-century museum

A new Lowe will be fully integrated into the heart of the University while also serving our community and region as an indispensable resource for learning, exploration, and inspiration through art and culture.

The Lowe of tomorrow will be built upon six strategic pillars, each of which represents extant collections-related and programmatic strengths: contemporary glass; Cuban and Cuban American art and culture; art, health, and well-being; contemporary art and culture; expanding the canon; and art of Indigenous Peoples.

These six thematic pillars will guide the reconceptualization and positioning of the museum as an interdisciplinary, technology-driven, cross-curricular hub committed to advancing diversity, equity, access, and inclusion in the service of both our campus and our community.

Stories of civilization

Strengthen society by supporting the arts

Art provides future generations—including our students—with a critical lens through which to examine the past while also shaping the future. By supporting the Lowe, you are investing in more than a museum; you are participating in the strengthening of our society.

Fundraising Priorities

The art of contemporary glass

We will elevate the understanding and appreciation of contemporary glass through a dynamic array of projects and programs, all designed to meet the needs of a plurality of audiences.

Cuban and Cuban American art and culture

We aspire to be a global leader in the realms of Cuban and Cuban American art and culture and the premier academic art museum in these fields.

Art, health, and well-being

We will leverage the University of Miami’s stellar health care assets in new and innovative ways that seamlessly blend art and science.

Contemporary art and culture

We will continue to grow our distinguished collection of contemporary art, paying particular attention to underrepresented artists and works that speak to Miami's tremendous diversity.

Expanding the canon

We will enable the University of Miami to recontextualize the Western canon and expand its boundaries to embrace masterworks from a plurality of cultures and traditions.

Art of Indigenous Peoples

We will empower Indigenous Peoples through interdisciplinary programs that position the University of Miami as a leader in the fields of decolonization and diversity.

Through lines

Together, these six pillars advance the museums commitment to serve as a classroom, an incubator, and an accelerator for the communities it serves.
