ABOUT THE EDITH BAKER ART SCHOLARSHIP AND ARTIST CAREER DEVELOPMENT FUND
To celebrate its 20th anniversary in 2005, DADA created a scholar¬ship fund honoring a respected member of the Dallas art community and one of its founding members, Edith Baker. Edith owned and directed The Edith Baker Gallery in Dallas for nearly 30 years before retiring in 2004. Every year, the Edith Baker Art Scholarship and Artist Career Development Fund, a 501(c)(3), financially benefits a student pursuing the study of visual arts along with giving that student a gallery internship, a mentor and an artist studio visit. The Fund also presents a career fair at Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts, two juried exhibitions of Booker T and Dallas County Community College students’ artwork, a docent-training program, biannual educational events, and partici¬pates in Art Chicas and Art Chicos at La Reunion TX.
