Focus On Youth is an annual photography exhibit showcasing the work of APS high school students. The show is sponsored by APS Fine Arts in collaboration with the Albuquerque Museum.

This year due to the pandemic, the show will be virtual. 

 Focus on Youth had a modest beginning. In 1986, it was held at a library near downtown Albuquerque. In 1988, the Albuquerque Museum generously offered to host the show and has been collaborating with APS Fine Arts on this prestigious exhibit ever since.

Last year, the show was canceled due to the pandemic, but it makes its strong strong return to the museum in a virtual format on their website from May to September 2021.

Focus on Youth was created to highlight and celebrate high school students’ efforts in their photography classes. Traditionally the show is juried by photography professionals in the Albuquerque area, however, this year the APS photography teachers fulfilled this role.

The 2020-21 virtual show displays the talents of our student photographers, and in many cases, their response to the pandemic. Enjoy the show!
