DADA is pleased to be partnering with the Creative Arts Center for these panels ”” with funding provided by the Office of Cultural Affairs City of Dallas and the Texas Commission on the Arts. Arts & Culture DFW is the media sponsor of the event that benefits DADA’s Edith Baker Art Scholarship and Artist Career Development Fund.


To celebrate its 20th anniversary in 2005, DADA created a scholarship 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 thirty 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 in college as well as presents programs such as 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 Art Chicas and Art Chicos at La Reunion TX.

Creative Arts Center of Dallas (CAC) provides a nurturing environment for people to discover, develop, and express their artistic visions. Located on a two-acre campus four miles east of downtown Dallas, CAC offers more than 500 classes and workshops per year in such disciplines as ceramics, clay sculpture, drawing, glass, jewelry, metal arts, mosaic, painting, photography, printmaking, and stone carving. CAC also offers free arts programming to disadvantaged children. Not only a visual arts school, CAC is also a thriving arts community for a diverse range of students from teens to seniors.
