Chanel Beebe

Art Curator

Born and raised in Detroit, Michigan, Chanel Beebe is a creative artist, writer, and educator who designs, implements, and conducts research on S.T.E.A.M. programming. Chanel has been curating art exhibitions since 2015. Chanel’s curatorial vision prioritizes under-exposed and under-appreciated artists from marginalized communities. 

As a growing “socio-technical activist,” Chanel seeks to blend her values of creativity, equity, health, and sustainability with her formal training as an Industrial Engineer. Ultimately, Chanel hopes her contributions will transform the experience of social reform and well-being for historically disenfranchised people. More of Chanel’s work and progress can be found at ChanelBeebe.com.
