Arnold Abner Newman never got to graduate from the University of Miami his parents ran into financial trouble and couldnt afford the tuition but the lack of a degree didnt slow his success. Newmans iconic portraits of people such as Pablo Picasso, John F. Kennedy, and Igor Stravinsky have since become inseparable from the subjects themselves, and the style Newman invented environmental portraiture nearly ubiquitous.
This Saturday, the Lowe Art Museum will look back at the Miami Beach-born shutterbug icon when it hosts Arnold Newman: Photographic Legacy, a free lecture by Gregory Heisler. The lecture which kicks off an exhibition of the same name that features Newmans works and runs through October 4 is followed by a $10 reception (free for Lowe members) that boasts decadent desserts and Bacardi cocktails. The lecture begins at 7 p.m., and the reception runs from 8 to 10.
