About Frank J Cunningham

Frank J Cunningham

Frank J Cunningham was born in Co. Mayo, Ireland. As a young adult, Frank studied at a Gaelic-speaking boarding school. At the end of his studies at the University of Galway, he traveled and worked across Western Europe, for five years. During this period, Cunningham immersed himself in the indigenous cultures of the countries where he lived, learning native languages (French and German). In the mid 1980’s, he immigrated to the United States.

He has since lived in New York City, Nantucket, and The Hamptons.

Since 2003, Frank has served as a Contributing Editor to  MuseumViews. He is now the Producer of feature film THE DEALER Movie, and Executive Director for INT’L MUSEUM WORKERS DAY.
