Focus on Youth
Apr 28, 2013 to Jun 9, 2013
Focus on Youth is a juried exhibition featuring photography by local high school students. The exhibition is a high school photography exhibition produced in partnership with the Albuquerque Public Schools Fine Arts program. Every April, just over 100 pieces are juried into the show, from a team of professional photographers, curators and educators. Students exhibit photographs in silver print, digital and non-digital special techniques and artist photography books.
This partnership provides aspiring artists with a rare opportunity to have an exhibition in a museum.Students and teachers spend countless hours framing the photographs which are turned over to the Museum’s staff to design and install the exhibition. This long-standing partnership with APS stems from the Museum’s commitment to provide arts opportunities for Albuquerque’s youth.
