It all started...
In 2015 Stephanie Johnson-Cunningham and Monica Montgomery, founded Museum Hue with a clear vision and mission, to create community and opportunities for creatives of color.
IT’S ALL ABOUT HUE!
Museum Hue is an arts platform for people of color (African, Latin, Asian, Middle-Eastern, Native American and Pacific Island descent). We craft a welcoming, creative environment that encourages exploration, investigation, collaboration, imagination, and creation in museums throughout major cities, countrysides, and everywhere in between. Our vast cultural experiences in disparate regions: Asia, Africa, Europe, the Americas, and the islands of the sea paints a portrait of our transnational, cosmopolitan community across the globe. We curate Hueseum tours and Huenity mixers that provide authentic participation in various forms of expression as well as disrupts the homogeneity of the mainstream art world. Our presence generates further visibility of cultural institutions through a wide, ever-expanding multi-channel Hueniverse. Museum Hue is recognized as a cultural movement and structural intervention within the creative ecosystem.
Hueseum Tours: Meaningful experiences for people of color in museums and other cultural enclaves. Participants engage with multiple artistic mediums used to visually communicate ideas, issues, and other expressions. They further examine works and performances on view through activities and discussion that take place directly after the presentation.
Hueniversity Courses: Professional Development workshops, seminars, teach-in’s, mentorathons (speed mentoring sessions), leadership panels and other educational advancement forums. We offer numerous courses on writing, branding, social media and ways to enhance one's skills in the arts field. In these programs participants receive on-site exposure to various arts cultural entities, hands-on experience with artistic mediums, best practices, etc.
Huenity Mixers: A fusion of a cultural party and professional networking for people of color. Attendees enjoy exciting games, storytelling and mingling. We showcase Diasporic music and spotlight contemporary dance for an insightful experience. The performances are reflective of the celebration’s theme. There are also chances to win prized artwork and objects.
