Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon for Women’s History Month

In honor of Women’s History Month, the National Museum of Women in the Arts, the Archives of American Art, and the Smithsonian American Art Museum are teaming up to organize a workshop and edit-a-thon focused on improving Wikipedia entries related to notable women artists and art world figures.

There are three goals for this project. The first is to facilitate knowledge creation about the history and achievements of inspirational women artists and other women in the arts. The second is to encourage inexperienced editors (especially women) to contribute to Wikipedia. The third goal is to increase awareness about the research resources freely available through these libraries, archives, and museums.

Follow this link for more information on participating in the Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon. Volunteers can participate in person or remotely.

Meet up to see Doug Aitken’s SONG 1

If you’re in DC or will be in the DC area on Monday, May 7, please join us for anĀ  informal ARLIS/DMV meet-up outside the Hirshhorn to see Doug Aitken’s projection and sound piece, SONG 1. The work is on view everyday, sunset to midnight until May 13. We’ll meet on Monday, May 7 at 8pm on the Mall-side steps of the Hirshhorn along Jefferson Drive.

Bring along anyone you like, especially any colleagues, students, volunteers, or interns you think might be interested in joining our chapter. For late-nighters, post-viewing discussion and drinks are encouraged!
