MUSEUMVIEWS founder HOMA Taj’s first brush with the art of performance came during high school, on Long Island NY, when she briefly studied with the legendary American dancer & choreographer Jacques D’Amboise, founder of the National Dance Institute in 1976.
Between 1989 and 1999, Homa studied at the prestigious Stella Adler Conservatory [now Studio of Acting] and worked as a production assistant on a number of independent film and theatre projects, in New York City.
During this time, Homa made a number of short, animation and experimental films including Waiting For Van Gogh and an experimental animation film based on Pablo Picasso’s Blue Period masterpiece Seated Nude Back (1902).
Since joining MUSEUMVIEWS in 2013, producer Frank J Cunningham has contributed to cultivating a truly global network of film, as well as art and heritage professionals who partner to partner with our current and forthcoming projects.
