I'm new to the Wikiverse and looking forward to making some small contributions.
Conflict of Interest
I, User:mfbjr, am an employee of the Archives of American Art, a research center within the Smithsonian Institution dedicated to collecting, preserving, and providing access to primary sources that document the history of the visual arts in America, and a cultural institution per WP:GLAM. I accept the editing conditions specified at that page. I will not make any edits that would not be beneficial to the goals of Wikipedia. My main edits will consist of the following activities:
- Creating or enhancing existing biographies of notable American artists or art world figures based on both published and original primary source materials.
- Creating or enhancing existing biographies of other notable scholars, researchers, and cultural figures, especially those from under-represented populations.
- Adding authoritative references, citations, and images to improve the quality of existing articles of all types.
I will modify my editing behavior based on problems cited by other editors or if my editing conflicts with other Wikipedia guidelines. I ask that other editors do not hesitate to contact me, via my talk page, if I appear to be going against this declaration.
