The Baltimore Museum of Art announced yesterday that an anonymous donor has given the institution $5 million to endow the position of its top executive. Museum officials say that the endowment will ensure the museum's ability to attract talented leaders in the future and free up funds for new programs and staff. Museum director Doreen Bolger's current salary of $228,000 had been funded by the museum's annual operating revenues. Museum officials suggested that Bolger's salary could increase next year, but it would not change automatically because of the gift.

The event was held last month at the Baltimore Museum of Art, where Baer is a trustee. There were almost 500 guests: past and present clients of the two designers, tradespeople they work with, friends and staff.

Advancing a plan to replace the Villages of Tall Trees with a public park, the Baltimore County Council is expected to vote Monday to approve $2.5 million for acquisition and demolition of 17 apartment buildings under the power of eminent domain. The move will help revitalization of the county's east side, Councilman Vincent J. Gardina said. Gardina said the county gained the power to exercise eminent domain after three property owners either refused to negotiate a selling price or sought almost triple the appraised value of their nearly 60-year-old buildings.

They decided to start their own business, says Ms. Pappas, "because so many people want to have a decorator come in but feel they can't afford it."
