To avoid the embarrassment of inventing surrealism 90 years too late, it might be wise to visit an art museum and see what art movements already exist. Marvel and muse among the aesthetically astute with today's Groupon: $5 gets you single-day admission to the Lowe Art Museum, a $10 value. Collecting original works from Asia, Africa, Europe, and the Americas, the Lowe serves as the art museum of the University of Miami and greater South Florida communities.

Since its modest start in three classrooms in the '50s, the museum has grown to house 5,000 years of world art. The holdings include a well-rounded assortment of permanent exhibits, such as Greco-Roman antiquities, renaissance and baroque art, and Native American, Asian, and African pieces. Conveniently located on University of Miami's campus, the Lowe was the first university art museum in Florida to achieve AAM accreditation and has been designated a "major cultural institution" by the state of Florida. A simple layout takes the stress out of your visit. Stop in the museum store for art-related gifts, publications, and jewelry after you're done art gazing.

Single-day admission gives you instant activity for spur-of-the-moment dates, impulsive cravings for education, and rainy-day ennui. Debate brushstrokes Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday from noon until 4 p.m. Round up your babysitting clientele and adopted Girl Scout troops—the Lowe offers free admission for children under 12. The museum is closed on Mondays so that the art can come alive in peace.

Reviews

Frommer's highly recommends a visit to Lowe Art Museum, and the Miami Performing Arts Examiner raves about the Myrna and Sheldon Palley Pavilion for Contemporary Glass and Studio Arts:

Four Insider Pagers give Lowe Art Museum a solid three stars, while six Citysearchers rate it four and six Yelpers award it a perfect five. Four TripAdvisors give the museum four owl eyes:

  • The Lowe is small but stunning in its coverage. You can see a few items from every region of the world in this spectacular collection, the best in the Miami area. – Mousewife, TripAdvisor
  • All the art here seems very unique and creative. – Anonymous, Insider Pages

Lowe Art Museum

When the University of Miami's Lowe Art Museum began in 1952, the school could comfortably display its entire collection in three unused classrooms. Those days are long past. Today, the museum stands as Miami's most comprehensive collection of western and non-western art. The permanent collections feature pieces drawn from across human history, with notable works including Claude Monet's Waterloo Bridge and a recently acquired face mask from the Dan people of Côte d'Ivoire and Liberia, forged from wood, cloth, and fur. A sizable trove of Native American artifacts includes pieces from the Southeast such as a beautifully embroidered bead shoulder bag. Other exhibits include paintings, sculpture, drawings, prints, and photographs from the Middle Ages through the present, including the Samuel H. Kress Collection of Renaissance and Baroque art, as well as pottery, sculpture, and metalwork from ancient Greece and the Roman Empire, dating from the first millennium BCE through the 4th century CE.

I loved both museums!

It was a great time. I didn't think I would enjoy museums but my son does. We did this a a summer fun day. We laughed and enjoyed it. I would love to go back to the Lowe Art Museum when they have new events.
