The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and the Tarble Arts Center are delighted to welcome Jennifer Baker to EIU as our new Director and Chief Curator at the Tarble. Ms. Baker comes to us from the Kansas City, MO area, where she has most recently been both a lecturer and critic-in-residence at the University of Kansas and a Curator of Exhibitions at Powell Gardens, a not-for-profit botanical garden. Prior to this, Ms. Baker worked as Assistant Curator at the Kansas City Art Institute and as Curatorial Assistant at the Pulitzer Arts Foundation. Ms. Baker holds an MFA in Visual Art from Washington University in St. Louis and a BA in Art and Psychology from Northeastern Illinois University. Ms. Baker is a curator, teacher, writer, and artist, who works, among other media, in handmade paper-making. We warmly welcome Ms. Baker to the Tarble, to the CLAS, to EIU, and to our community, and look forward with great anticipation to the new and exciting experiences in the Arts that Ms. Baker and the Tarble Team will bring to us.
