Baker used as inspiration to create an original musical composition for the dance piece, "Before the Demolition," choreographed by Kellie Harmon and performed by Helen Hansen French at the Museum of Fine Arts, St. Petersburg. This work was also featured in the Skyway: A Contemporary Collaboration Exhibition in 2017.
