Help to improve this article[edit]

Dear fellow editors, Please help to improve this article. I hope to add content to the two red line links or make major subsection. Please give me feedback. Geraldshields11 (talk) 20:52, 12 March 2013 (UTC)

I redid the intro paragraph to help mobile users. Please critique. Geraldshields11 (talk) 16:11, 13 March 2013 (UTC)
You have been hard at work! I haven't made any edits, but my $.02 is to watch out for 1) "peacock" words ("finest," "highly regarded"), especially in paragraphs with no references cited, and 2) redlink overload. I wonder whether every program that is redlinked will have enough 3rd party sources to meet notability threshold? Also, can you expand on about the connection between article lead and mobile users--how can we best serve them? --Sarasays (talk) 19:36, 15 March 2013 (UTC)
You are correct as usual Sarasays. I will change it. Geraldshields11 (talk) 13:19, 18 March 2013 (UTC)
As I understand the issues about the intro para and mobile users, The hope is the intro para and the info box would be enough to wet a moble user's appetite to either go to the museum or later look at the entire article later on a larger screen. I do not habve a means to test the look on a smartphone but I think the intro para and info box show up side by side on those small screens. Geraldshields11 (talk) 21:19, 19 March 2013 (UTC)
That is why I changed the photo in the info box to a panorama view instead of a cropped view. Geraldshields11 (talk) 21:21, 19 March 2013 (UTC)
