Together, Kenny Baird and his sister Rebecca share a concern for reclaiming Aboriginal North American history, and an understated critique of colonialism, evinced in large-scale installations which exploit Baird's skill in set design. Baird has received several Canada Council and Ontario Arts Council awards, a residency scholarship to the Banff Centre for the Arts curated by Sarah Diamond, in addition to a Juno award and nominations for several MuchMusic and MTV art direction awards.
In September 2004, Baird exhibited a new large scale work, "Murder of Crows" for the Tecumseh Arts Festival month long visual art exhibition "Witness" at Fort York in Toronto.
