Negar Cooper

"I was so proud of Toledo for bringing that exhibition—and then for me to be a part of it, made me feel so good."

Negar, originally from Iran, played a collaborative role in helping TMA’s curatorial and program teams develop a unique and authentic presentation of the “Bestowing Beauty: Masterpieces from Persian Lands” exhibition. She provided an audio tour of the exhibition in her native Farsi language, promoted the show to her extensive social media followers around the world, and helped orchestrate a memorable musical performance featuring Sara Naeini. We met with Negar to discuss her various experiences with “Bestowing Beauty: Masterpieces from Persian Lands.”
