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.

For more information, visit our Meetup page.

Members on the Road: Waco

Members on the Road

Step back in time into the houses, gardens, and grounds of three historic properties in Waco, the city on the Brazos River that calls itself the heart of Texas. Built by affluent merchants and pioneer planters, these homes present distinct styles that give a broad view of mid- to late nineteenth-century art and design. We will examine paintings, architecture, furniture, textiles, and costumes on privately led tours of each property. Lunch will be catered by Olive Branch Bakery & Café at the McCulloch House.

Fee: $150 per person includes transportation, lunch, all fees and gratuities.
