Stephanie Cunningham Co-Founder and Creative Director Museum Hue

Stephanie Cunningham is the Co-Founder and Creative Director of Museum Hue, an organization that works to increase diversity in patrons, professionals, and cultural producers in the creative economy.

Her teaching career spans over five years and has afforded her the opportunity to teach in a variety of environments to a vast range of audiences. She has practiced inquiry-based learning methodologies at the Brooklyn Museum and the New-York Historical Society. Stephanie has served as an educator for children k-12, and adults audiences as well as more didactic approaches in tertiary level classes as a lecturer at City College of New York (CUNY), and New Jersey City University.
