University of Miami: Lowe Art Museum offers unique, immersive experience


Through the years, the Lowe Art Museum on the Coral Gables Campus has provided access to astonishing art in a venue that was founded to serve faculty and staff members, students, scholars, researchers, and local community members.

The Lowe is home to a diverse collection of more than 19,000 objects, which together embodies more than 5,000 years of human creativity.

After being closed for more than a year because of the pandemic, the Lowe reopened last year and will offer free admission through May 2023—thanks to the generosity of Beaux Arts. This semester, more programming is in the works to engage audiences. From onsite and virtual engagements with renowned artists from around the world to learning to sketch—with no art experience necessary—the Lowe Art Museum has it covered.

“The Lowe offers its diverse audience with accessible engagement to contemporary culture,” said Nathalia Bolivar, communications specialist for the museum. “It is a place for learning, gathering, and a site for self-discovery.”

Through an array of programming like USketch, an in-person sketch class with a goal to de-stress and enjoy creative time together, or the Art of Mindfulness, a virtual guided mindfulness practice, the Lowe has something for everyone to enjoy. Now through Oct. 2, patrons can enjoy “Beyond the Sounds of Silence,” a multi-sensory exhibition featuring leading Latin American artists connecting sound, art, and society. The exhibition focuses on the intersection of Indigenous traditions with contemporary art and the relationship between form and language in musical implements.

Bolivar recommends students take advantage of their membership benefits to enjoy exclusive lectures and special events—including Lowe After Hours, a signature event where participants can enjoy refreshments, mingle, and learn about all the Lowe galleries and exhibitions after closing.

“We hope that after each visit, our audience joins us in celebrating the power that art has to elevate the human spirit,” said Bolivar. “The Lowe welcomes its audience to indulge in creativity.”
