Provenance Research Policy

Research and Photo Policies

No photography of any kind (still camera, video recorder, motion picture camera) is allowed in the museum, except as detailed in this section.  The Lowe Art Museum’s policy on photography and filming in its galleries exists to ensure that works of art are not subjected to the adverse effects of accumulated light damage; to protect copyright, whether owned by the Lowe Art Museum or by another entity; to remain compliant with the terms of traveling exhibition contracts that prohibit photography; and to provide quality control for images reproduced from the Lowe’s collections. | more

Collections Policies

The Lowe Art Museum’s collections are made accessible to students and faculty of the University of Miami, as well as to qualified scholars and researchers, on the Museum’s premises only.  The general public will have access only to that part of the collection that is on exhibition in the galleries.  In making collection objects and documentation available to researchers, priority will be given to the needs of the Lowe’s curatorial and exhibition programs.  In all cases, the Lowe seeks to balance requests for access with its mission to preserve the fragile and rare artwork it collects. | more
