    EPIP Chicago - "The Art and Justice of Seeing" Breakfast Discussion

    This breakfast discussion will explore the connections between art and justice through a presentation led by Faheem Majeed, a Chicago-based artist, and Shari Felty, Assistant Registrar at the Terra Foundation for American Art.

    Faheem Majeed 

    Faheem Majeed (American, b. 1976) is a builder—literally and metaphorically. A resident of the South Shore neighborhood in Chicago, Majeed often looks to the material makeup of his neighborhood and surrounding areas as an entry point into larger questions around civic-mindedness, community activism, and institutional critique. As part of his studio practice, the artist transforms materials such as particle board, scrap metal and wood, and discarded signs and billboard remnants, breathing new life into these often overlooked and devalued materials. His broader engagement with the arts also involves arts administration, curation, and community facilitation, all which feed into his larger practice.

    Majeed received his BFA from Howard University and his MFA from the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC). 

    From 2005-2011, Majeed served as Executive Director and Curator for the South Side Community Art Center (SSCAC).  In this role he was responsible for managing operations, staff, programs, fundraising, curation, and archives for the SSCAC. During his time with the SSCAC, Majeed curated exhibitions of numerous artists including Elizabeth Catlett, Dr. David Driskell, Charles White, Jonathan Green, and Theaster Gates.

    Majeed was selected as the inaugural artist in residence for University of Chicago’s Arts in Public Life Initiative (2012), MANA Contemporary Chicago (2014), and Chicago’s Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (2015).

    From 2013 – 2015 he served as the associate director and faculty of UIC’s School of Art and Art History.  While at UIC he taught classes in museum collections and socially engaged art practices.

    Currently, Faheem is a full-time, practicing artist and creates work in his South Shore studio.

    EPIP CO | Leadership Journeys

    EPIP Colorado's Leadership Journeys Luncheon brings together two of Colorado’s philanthropic leaders to share their journey into philanthropy and their path to leadership. Are you curious to know more about leadership within philanthropy? Do you wonder how equity and social justice play a role, or not, in advancing philanthropic efforts in our state? Katie Kramer (President and CEO, Boettcher Foundation) and Carlos Martinez (President and CEO, Latino Community Foundation of Colorado) will give us the inside scoop on how they got where they are today and their insights on philanthropy - the good, the bad, and the ugly.

    Carlos Martinez has been the President/CEO of the Latino Community Foundation of Colorado (LCFC) since 2014. Prior to that, Carlos held various executive positions and led the transformation of several non-profit organizations in Colorado, California and Massachusetts and has worked in philanthropy at the executive level.

    Katie Kramer has been the CEO of the Boettcher Foundation since 2017. She has come full circle with the foundation, from being selected as a Boettcher Scholar in 1993 to having served in various roles since joining the organization in 1997, including 15 years as vice president and assistant executive director.

    Come learn more about these two dynamic leaders and their honest perspectives on philanthropy in Colorado. Tickets are $5.00 and will help cover the cost of a simple and filling lunch.

    You do not need to be an EPIP member to attend! We welcome anyone from the philanthropic community to join us. 

    Room location and parking: We will be in the Training Center on the 1st floor. Visitor parking is available on the 4th level of the parking garage on the south side of the building. Accessible parking is available on the surface lot on the south side of the building.
