Phillips edit-a-thon this Sunday (a draft on Agnes Weinrich)[edit]


I'm attending the Phillips Collection edit-a-thon this Sunday. After I signed up I made a list of American artists represented in the Made in the USA exhibition who didn't have Wikipedia articles and selected Karl Knaths as my first target. In working on that page I became interested in his sister-in-law, Agnes Weinrich, also an artist, and, since she also lacked a Wikipedia article, I've begun a draft on her. I plan to work on both pages Sunday, if that fits with the program.

The Knaths page is exactly where you'd expect it. The Weinrich draft is in my sandbox, here:

If you've time and interest, I welcome help in improving the Weinrich draft. I've completed the basic stuff and am taking a breather before double-checking facts, nosing out typos & misspellings, and dealing with awkward phrasings and the like.

July will also feature the second annual Great American Wiknic in Frederick, Maryland. This year’s Frederick picnic will take place on Sunday, July 6 at Baker Park. Sign up here for the Frederick picnic.
