This annual exhibition of student photography is moving online! In partnership with the Albuquerque Public Schools Fine Arts program we showcase artwork from high school students enrolled in photography programs across the district. This annual partnership provides students opportunities to display their work in a museum setting.

  • Outstanding work and I am a superintendent of schools from CT with a great art department.
  • So good to see! Pretty incredible talent we have here in New Mexico. A lot of wisdom too.
  • I love this exhibition because I get to see the art of the people I know who are my age. It is so inspiring to see this beautiful work and this may be one of my favorite exhibitions ever!
  • This exhibit is a tribute to our youth and their artistic ability which is fostered by our educators of the Arts…
  • Thanks to the schools that provided these young people with the opportunity to experience their Creative abilities.
  • LOVE this exhibit. The work is incredible and seems beyond “student” level. Very impressive all around. The students should be so proud.
