Brenda BakerBrenda Baker is an artist and Director of Exhibits at Madison Childrenâ€™s Museum, where she has worked as an educator, artist, and exhibit designer for the past 20 years. One of Brendaâ€™s visions for the new museum, which opened this past fall, was to transform the museum into a hub and showcase of Madisonâ€™s amazing artistic talent, and to have the entire building and all of its exhibits be a showcase for healthy, sustainable design practices that support childrenâ€™s holistic development.
Brenda has been a national leader in the museum field for the past 15 years creating sustainable exhibits with a decidedly local and artistic sensibility. The founder of greenexhibits.org, Brenda has received a Fulbright travel award and awards from the American Association of Museums, Association of Childrenâ€™s Museums, UW Madison School of Education, and recently a Badger Bioneers award for her work.
