Edith Baker Art Scholarship

ABOUT The Edith Baker Art Scholarship Fund and The Steven L. Green and Kenneth R. Craighead Jr. Fund for Arts and Education

To celebrate its 20th anniversary in 2005, DADA created The Edith Baker Art Scholarship Fund, a 501(c)(3), honoring Edith Baker a respected member of the Dallas art community and one of its founding members.  Edith owned and directed The Edith Baker Gallery in Dallas for nearly 30 years before retiring in 2004. The Scholarship benefits Booker T. Washington High School seniors pursuing the study of visual arts.  The award includes a professional exhibition of the winning works of art, awards reception and the opportunity for a DADA internship.

In 2013, additional funds were generously added to the Scholarship Awards by The Steven L. Green and Kenneth R. Craighead Jr. Fund for Arts and Education. Gallery owner Kenneth Craighead, and partner Steve Green, opened The Craighead Green Gallery in 1992 and it is recognized as one of the finest contemporary art galleries throughout Texas and the Southwest, representing over 40 artists of all mediums.
