Founded in 1952, Beaux Arts, Inc., is an educational and charitable organization that supports the Lowe Art Museum of the University of Miami. Beaux Arts provides improvements, equipment, and financial assistance for exhibitions, supports community outreach programs at the Lowe Art Museum, and encourages appreciation of the Arts.

The Beaux Arts collection was transferred to the University Archives in February 2012, and it includes 30 scrapbooks dating from 1950-2005. These scrapbooks contain photographs, programs, and news clippings that document Beaux Arts activities and events, such as the Beaux Arts Costume Ball and the Festival of Art.

Additional materials from the Beaux Arts collection, including yearbooks, newsletters, and organizational records, are available for research upon request at the University of Miami University Archives.
