About

     Friends of Contemporary Art + Photography (FOCA+P), a support group of the Museum of New Mexico Foundation, works actively as an advocate for contemporary art and photography by supporting exhibitions at the New Mexico Museum of Art, helping the Museum acquire art for its collection, and organizing programs for its membership and the community. FOCA+P, formerly FOCA, has recently expanded its emphasis to highlight contemporary photography as a reflection of the significance of this medium in contemporary art and the New Mexico community.
