Focus on Youth

On view through June 2, 2024

Focus on Youth, an annual juried exhibition of photographs and films created by high school students from the Albuquerque Public Schools, returns to Albuquerque Museum.  The exhibition includes nearly 100 photographs and short films, reflecting mastery across a range of techniques including silver print, digital and special techniques in photography, art books and digital film.

The works in the exhibition are submitted by art teachers to be juried into the show by professional photographers. Juried works are then matted and framed by a team of art teachers and students, before being transported to the Museum where the staff design and install the exhibition.

The exhibition is part of a multi-decade partnership between the Albuquerque Public Schools Fine Arts Department and Albuquerque Museum to highlight the creativity of youth photographers and filmmakers.  Through this partnership, students are provided with a rare opportunity to exhibit their works in a museum.
