The Lowe Art Museum at the University of Miami

We are proud to represent the Lowe Art Museum, a collection spanning more than 5,000 years.

As the museum for the University of Miami, the Lowe Art Museum serves as an educational and cultural liaison to the community extending beyond academia to the vibrant art scene in Miami. One of the finest art collections in the Southeast, the Lowe holds an eclectic collection of over 17,500 original works from the Americas, Asia, Europe and Africa.

Bridgeman is in the process of scanning and cataloging the Lowe collection, with many more images to come. For general research assistance, or if you need help finding a specific image from the Lowe, please email requests to nysales@bridgemanimages.com
