Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon

Network and collaborate with your fellow American art enthusiasts at these events, every third Thursday of every other month (except where noted otherwise), 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., in the museum's Library to "help Wikipedia tell the story of American art." Attendees will be help facilitate the museum's mission to further knowledge on American art by either creating or editing articles on topics that relate to the museum's collections. However, editors have the freedom to write on any topic they wish.

Both novice and experienced editors are invited to join us. We'll have experienced Wikipedians to guide writers on Wikipedia editing policies and technical procedures. Attendees will work in the museum's Reading Room, which offers a collaborative and inspiring space for editing. Editors will also have ready access to the library's near-comprehensive collection of research resources on American art.
