Join the Changemakers Series to meet our guests, Shireen and Afzal Ahmad, the founders of the South Asia Institute.  We will learn about their passion for the Arts and about their upcoming exhibition.  All the attendees will be invited for a private showing of the exhibit on a few chosen dates.  You are welcome to bring guests with you to the private showing as long as space is available.  Let's support this new initiative in Chicago!  

Thank you to SAI for sponsoring this event.  Find out more about SAI at https://www.saichicago.org/

Masks will be worn regardless of vaccination status except when eating. 

Here is their personal statement: 

Our passion for South Asian Art inspired us to assemble one of the most significant collections of South Asian Art in the United States. Over a period of 45+ years the collection has grown to include works ranging from early Moghul Miniatures to Modern Masters to Contemporary artists from the region.

While we have enjoyed living with these works in our home, it has always been our mission to share the works in the collection on a much larger scale and to foster and promote South Asian Art and culture in the United States. It was in order to accomplish this mission that we decided to establish the South Asia Institute in Chicago.

Although the first immigrants from South Asia arrived in the late 18th Century and now number over 3 million, very little of their history, art and culture is represented in mainline museums. At the Institute, we will not only showcase the common heritage and identity of the South Asian Americans that makes us unique but we will also celebrate the common connections and values that we share with our neighbors and the universal community at large.

Art and cultural expression represent areas that bring together people from diverse backgrounds, to share in an experience.  These encounters help us to understand and identify with one another and become more tolerant of our differences.

We look forward to South Asia Institute becoming a unique destination in Chicago where the heritage and various art forms of South Asia are celebrated through exhibitions, live music and dance performances, film screenings and book readings, to name just a few of the types of planned cultural events.

Hope to see you soon at South Asia Institute!!

Shireen & Afzal Ahmad.
