The Lowe Art Museum is proud to host The Arnold and Augusta Newman Endowed Lecture Series in Photography, which brings distinguished photographers to our campus to discuss their work in a public forum and to engage directly with UM students. This program is made possible thanks to a $500,000 endowed gift from the Arnold and Augusta Newman Foundation, which has secured the future of this biannual lecture series in perpetuity while also honoring the remarkable legacy of the late Arnold Newman.
