Art in Focus was a monthly arts newsletter edited and published by Dorothy Grafly in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania from October 1949 to 1980. It was preceded by Art Outlook, also edited by Grafly and published by Philip Ragan Associates (1943-1949). There were generally nine issues a year, though some issues were missed toward the end of the run as Grafly's health declined.
