The Lowe Art Museum is the art museum of the University of Miami in Coral Gables.

However, only a year later, philanthropists Joe and Emily Lowe donated money for the construction of a new facility. The was the first art museum in South Florida, and it was officially opened to the public in 1952. In 1956, Alfred I. Barton donated his extensive collection of Native American art to the museum.
