Restored. Ignorance of the siting, one supposes. "Be bold" is such a very poor idea: it encourages just the wrong sort. --Wetman 20:23, 10 August 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:CooperHewittNDM.png[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:CooperHewittNDM.png is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

March 2008[edit]

I expanded the article and added some sourcing, but the history and collections section still need more information. TRAVELLINGCARIMy storyTell me yours 02:08, 20 March 2008 (UTC)

comma[edit]

Why does the name have a comma? —Tamfang (talk) 05:19, 16 May 2011 (UTC)

Why n-dash in title?[edit]

Looks like a hyphen when I try to edit, but ends up being "displayed" as an n-dash when viewed in firefox (3.6.28 on mac osx 2.5.8). This looks ridiculous. It should display as a hyphen. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 80.203.252.225 (talk) 11:49, 28 May 2012 (UTC)

I read up on the article and the style guide. The museum uses hyphens. However, the dash in the title is an n-dash, which is arguably correct since the names Cooper and Hewitt are from two different families. N-dashed title in infobox and link to museum's webpage to comply. Ezr (talk) 15:33, 30 May 2012 (UTC)

only museum in the US devoted to historical and contemporary design?[edit]

Notably, there's also the Museum of Arts and Design, also in NYC, which has both contemporary and historical exhibitions on design (as well as craft). XXV (talk) 03:27, 17 December 2013 (UTC)
