Beaux Arts Mission Statement Beaux Arts is a volunteer organization whose purpose is to encourage an understanding and appreciation of the arts in South Florida. All proceeds from Beaux Arts go to serve this purpose. This includes offering outreach programs to children in our community, such as Hands On! and Student Artist Showcase, where children have opportunities to learn about art and participate in the artistic process. Beaux Arts also sponsors a Festival of Art every year at no cost to the patrons. This event draws artists in a variety of mediums, exposing the community at large to numerous forms of visual art. Finally, Beaux Arts provides support to the Lowe Art Museum by assisting with important art acquisitions, contribution to the museum’s ongoing operation, and by enhancing its educational programming and outreach.

In 1987, Beaux Arts introduced a new outreach project, "HandsOn!" - A Children's Celebration in Art." Today the program brings underserved kids from all over Miami-Dade County to the museum for a day of fun and learning. The program enables students from Title 1 elementary schools, as well as CHARLEE Homes for Children, to visit the museum free of charge and with paid transportation, learn about specific exhibits and participate in art projects. In 2013, Beaux Arts doubled the size of this program and hosted over 700 elementary school children. In 2014, Beaux reached outside of the museum setting and brought this art appreciation program to children residing at the Chapman Partnership Homeless Shelter.
