Jacob Lawrence Gallery

An Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon on November 18, from 1–5pm, is continuing an initiative begun at the Gallery during May: to improve Wikipedia’s coverage of queer and womxn artists of color. This is supported by both Wikipedia and Art+Feminism through a stipend for a Wikipedia Fellow in the Gallery; this position is currently held by Art History PhD student Laura Stowell.

No previous Wikipedia experience is needed to join the edit-a-thon. More information is available on the Facebook event page or in our calendar entry.

Please note that there will not be free parking on campus that Saturday afternoon due to a football game. Check the Gallery's website for information about getting there.
