Beaux Arts is a 100% volunteer organization made up of 100 women and over 300 associates, who fund art enrichment, appreciation and financial assistance to the Lowe Art Museum at the University of Miami. Through major fundraising initiatives such as the annual Beaux Arts Ball and Festival of Art on the University of Miami Campus, the organization is the largest group financial donor to the museum. Beaux Arts recently won the “White Award,” with which the group was recognized as the University of Miami’s most effective donor and surpassing the $5 million mark of funds contributed to the Lowe Museum. To date, Beaux Arts has hosted over 25,000 children at the Beaux Arts Art Camp and hosted over 5,000 students from Miami-Dade schools for its art appreciation outreach program, “Hands On!”
