INFOCUS, a vibrant support organization of Phoenix Art Museum (PAM), is composed of people actively interested in photography as a dynamic art form. Photographers, collectors, and photography enthusiasts working together enable INFOCUS to provide a high-quality forum for the study, display and production of fine art photographs.

The photography collection at Phoenix Art Museum is drawn, on a loan basis, from the Center for Creative Photography at the University of Arizona, which is the largest institution in the world devoted to documenting the history of North American photography.

INFOCUS provides access to world class photography and photography experts through exhibitions and lectures at PAM as well as national and international trips to significant photography sites and collections. INFOCUS also engages in many interesting activities, often monthly, designed to:

  • Add to their knowledge about the medium of photography
  • Encourage member-collectors to share their treasures
  • Promote interest in taking, collecting and preserving photographs
  • Learn more about historical photos and how they were taken
  • We hold at least one major fundraising event annually, the proceeds of which support the activities of Phoenix Art Museum’s Norton Family Curator of Photography. Other proceeds from membership dues and INFOCUS activities go toward gallery guides for our exhibitions, scholarships and recognition for practicing photographers and their supporters.

    If you love photography, we look forward to welcoming you at an event, as a member and on Facebook today.
