Focus on the Arts (Focus) is a three-day and three-night biennial fine arts festival that exposes thousands of students and our community to the visual, performing, and communication arts. All events take place at Highland Park High School, are open to the public, and are free of charge. The mission of Focus is to increase appreciation and understanding of the arts and of arts professionals. The Foundation’s funding supports and expands programming that immerses HPHS students and the adult community in a celebration of fine arts and experience the arts first hand. Due to COVID mitigations required for this sort of event, Focus 2022 has been postponed to 2023.
