Event Description

“A” is for Atget, “B” is for Barrow, “C” is for Come join Katherine Ware, New Mexico Museum of Art’s curator of photography, for the official launch of FOCA+P as she takes us on an alphabetical journey through the museum’s photography holdings and talks about collecting strategies, future exhibitions, and special projects.

The talk is at 2 p.m. Saturday, February 23 inside the New Mexico Museum of Art’s St. Francis Auditorium. Admission is free. A light reception will follow.

The permanent collection of the New Mexico Museum of Art is home to over 8,000 photographs only a fraction of which can be on display at any one time. Ms. Ware’s talk sheds light on some of the many treasures that make the photography holdings a culturally rich and historically significant collection for New Mexico.
