As a sculptor and installation artist, Freedom Baird draws from her interdisciplinary background in the performing, visual, and media arts. Originally from New York City, she studied dance and neurobiology at Oberlin College, received an MS in media arts and sciences from MIT’s Media Lab, and an MFA in sculpture/installation from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design.

Tremper, NY, Finding Solace in the Woods at Beals Preserve in Southborough, MA, and Grounds for Play at the Fuller Craft Museum in Brockton, MA. Baird was an artist in residence on the Boston Harbor Islands during the summer of 2018, and has received awards and grants including those from the New York Film Festival, the MIT Council for the Arts, and the Vital Impact Foundation. Baird lives in Cambridge, MA with her two fourteen-year-old children, with whom she sometimes collaborates.
