For over 35 years, En Foco has remained a leader in documenting the artistic journeys created by artists often overlooked by the mainstream art world. Through our visual arts programs, artists are free to explore or reinvent cultural traditions, challenge preconceived notions, and engage audiences in a lively manner.

Tickets are priced modestly - but with your support, it will go far in supporting our programs as En Foco prepares to make its substantial Permanent Collection travel nationwide, with an accompanying catalogue.
