Hello Ms Ockerbloom,[edit]

A colleague showed me that you had done a bio on me, and I want to thank you. It is really good and will a very useful reference.

There are a few errors ... things you would not know ... and I would like to fix these. (things like where I was born, etc) There are also a few awards and typos that should be listed. And another honorary doctorate coming!

Can I please just send you a short list and ask for your help to fix these?

Also, is there any information I can provide you with?

Thank you again! Elaine Oran

Yes, please send me any corrections (and ideally, a reference to some source that I can cite to confirm it -- a URL is fine if the information is on a web page somewhere).Mary Mark Ockerbloom (talk) 15:36, 12 February 2015 (UTC)

Great work[edit]

Presentation proposal for Wikimania 2015[edit]

Wikimania 2015 Mexico City identity.jpg How to pick up more women...
Hello! Victuallers and I have developed a proposal for a talk to be presented at Wikimania 2015. It's titled, How to pick up more women... -- as in more women editors and more women's biographies. Examples include the Edit-a-thon blitz during WikiWomen's History Month and the "new articles" work underway by WikiProject Women Writers. The Wikimania talk proposal review process has begun and there's no guarantee that this proposal will be accepted. That's where you come in. Please review our proposal and give us feedback. Ultimately, we hope you add your name to the signup at the bottom of the proposal which signifies you're interested in the talk (it does not signify you'll be attending the event). Thank you!

The Button[edit]

I added a Commons image of The Botton to the article, but I have some doubts about copyright. What do you say?--DThomsen8 (talk) 00:40, 7 March 2015 (UTC)

The button is a public artwork created in 1981; artworks created after 1977 are copyrighted by their creator, who must give permission for any photographs of the artwork. Mary Mark Ockerbloom (talk) 14:32, 11 March 2015 (UTC)

Hi. Just saw this edit. I've already approved the original hook, so ALT3 is not needed. (It's also quite long).  — ₳aron 11:39, 13 March 2015 (UTC)

WikiProject Did you knowDYK comment symbol nomination

Margo Humphrey

  • ... that Margo Humphrey's colorful transformation of "The Last Supper", The Last Bar-B-Que, is considered one of American visual culture's iconic images?

Created by Smallbones (talk), Mary Mark Ockerbloom (talk). Nominated by Mary Mark Ockerbloom (talk) at 16:52, 26 March 2015 (UTC).

  • I replaced the text <the last supper> with <"The Last Supper">. I think we should give Da Vinci at least as much respect as Humphrey. :-) As far as "Fiji" in the Alt1 hook - she didn't actually teach in Fiji since it was distance education, but she was invited by the Queen, which might be another hook to consider. Smallbones(smalltalk) 17:17, 26 March 2015 (UTC)
  • My intention was to refer to the event rather than a particular painting; in one of the sources she talks about having looked at many different depictions of the last supper before creating her own work, so I would want to avoid implying that Da Vinci was the major influence (even if he is the best known). One of the other sources suggests she did actually travel to Fiji to teach, I'll make sure to add that one to the citations. Thanks! Mary Mark Ockerbloom (talk) 19:55, 26 March 2015 (UTC)
Symbol question.svg interesting person, on good sources. I like the original hook better, but suggest to use the phrasing of the source:
ALT2: ... that Margo Humphrey based her colorful The Last Bar-B-Que on The Last Supper, creating one of the "iconic images in American visual culture? --Gerda Arendt (talk) 10:29, 15 April 2015 (UTC)

You are out-doing yourself today[edit]

External video
Margo Humphrey pt.1: Our Common Bond Artists Talk,
"I am Precious"
Myrtis Bedolla on YouTube, 9:37

As you know I usually check for videos. They often show the person, you can hear her talk,and sometimes see what she says when she's in control. About 1 minute into this video, "I am Precious" changes the whole article for me. Maybe it is too personal, maybe you won't like it. See what you think and remove if necessary. Smallbones(smalltalk) 18:41, 26 March 2015 (UTC)

  • Amazing what left-over caffeine and adrenalin can do :-) (and I have the day off from work). Wow. I would say yes, absolutely include both the videos (I'm made the change to add the second part). This is really an argument for why the external video links should be accepted -- the print sources all emphasize the brightness of her work, and her own discussions give a sense of the darkness that she has overcome to make that happen. Very powerful. Mary Mark Ockerbloom (talk) 20:21, 26 March 2015 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Meetup/Philadelphia/Represent African American Artists[edit]

What is the status of images of the artists and the artistic works for Wikipedia:Meetup/Philadelphia/Represent African American Artists?

I haven't done a systematic search for images; one or two photos were added last night, but most of the artworks are likely to be under copyright. I think Pete is checking for videos, I've mostly been making sure the new pages have enough content to stick :-) If you want to check for photos on Wikimedia commmons, go for it. Thanks for all your edits! Excellent teamwork! Mary Mark Ockerbloom (talk) 22:07, 26 March 2015 (UTC)
If PMA owns the art work in the exhibition, perhaps they would provide copyright permission. Same idea with the artists.--DThomsen8 (talk) 01:31, 27 March 2015 (UTC)
In most cases PMA doesn't own the rights. I did talk to them about that briefly when they started planning the event. Mary Mark Ockerbloom (talk) 11:30, 27 March 2015 (UTC)
