Friends of Contemporary Art and Photography (FOCA+P)

The Friends of Contemporary Art and Photography (FOCA+P) are the part of the Museum of New Mexico Foundation that advocate for contemporary art and photography by supporting related exhibitions and collections at the New Mexico Museum of Art.

Offering up to eight select events each year, FOCA+P works to inspire dialogue on the subject by sponsoring visiting speakers from the contemporary art world, organizing tours of galleries and private collections, arranging artist studio visits and more.

Members looks forward to the group’s annual Artist Studio Tour, which encourages relaxation and conversation around contemporary art or photography. The group’s annual House Party never fails to feature interesting art and architectural settings with diverse guest lists that include curators, artists and collectors. Their exclusive previews of cutting-edge art exhibitions at local galleries always draw a crowd. Each event promises great food and drink and inspiring insights.

As FOCA+P members interact in these exclusive educational, cultural and social settings, they generate essential funding for museum exhibitions and collections. To date, such funding has supported more than 30 exhibitions and acquisitions of more than 25 works of art.
