Chuck Baird-De'VIA Artist

This video is available courtesy of Patti Durr's Deaf Art, Deaf Artists website. Chuck Baird (1947-2012) was born deaf in Kansas City and along with his three older sisters, went to the Kansas School for the Deaf. He received his art education from Mrs. Grace Bilger, a renowned watercolorist, and graduated in 1967. He enrolled at Gallaudet University but then transferred to the Rochester Institute of Technology, where he received his BFA in Painting in 1974. Baird spent his first 5 summers after graduation at the National Theatre of the Deaf (NTD) painting their sets. He is considered the "Father of De'VIA".
