  • Free parking is normally available on campus after 12pm on Saturdays.

  • The ‘Big Four,’ or the four white male artists that comprised the Northwest School, were the subject of the famous 1953 LIFE magazine article, "Mystic Painters of the Northwest": Guy Anderson, Kenneth Callahan, Morris Graves, and Mark Tobey. Each of these artists have robust pages on Wikipedia. However, key female-identifying artists from this time such as Margaret Gove Cafferman — who Mark Tobey cited as an influence on his work — lack Wikipedia articles.[* 1] To help address the imbalance of representation on Wikipedia, the Jacob Lawrence Gallery is organizing an Art + Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon focused on female-identifying artists of the Pacific Northwest.
  • Childcare, snacks from local businesses, editing tutorials, books, and lists of artists will be provided.
  • All you need to bring is your laptop, power cord, and ideas. No previous Wikipedia experience required!
  • Everyone is welcome. Access to UW wifi will be provided for non-UW affiliated participants.
  • Please create a Wikipedia account before the event.

Lake Lenore or Alkali Lake?[edit]

Hi, Walter! I hope you are doing well and keeping healthy. I still enjoy your many pictures at Commons.

I saw that you moved Commons:File:Alkali Lake Washington.jpg to Commons:File:Lake Lenore.jpg. There seems to be disagreement over the name of this lake. As far as I can tell, this is a photograph of the lake to the East of Washington State Route 17 in the lower Grand Coulee. If you look at the topo map, the lake on both sides of State Route 17 is named "Lenore". If you look at Google maps, the lake on the west side is "Lake Lenore" and the lake on the east side is "Alkali Lake". GNIS also thinks this is named Alkali Lake. I believe this is the lake to the east, because it has those funny little islands.

I suspect this is actually "Alkali Lake", because of GNIS, but I'm not 100% sure. Do you have other information that would help us figure it out? — hike395 (talk) 04:10, 24 July 2020 (UTC)

Hi Hike395.
I copied salient portions of your comments above to Commons:File talk:Alkali Lake Washington.jpg .jpg so that they may be more readily found by other editors. I added my response. I requested file name repair.[1] A spurious .jpg extension was added when I tried to move the file back to its previous name.
I enjoy your pictures as well. I remain well and hope you do the same. Walter Siegmund (talk) 16:00, 24 July 2020 (UTC)
I think all is as it should be now. Thank you for your kind attention. Walter Siegmund (talk) 18:15, 24 July 2020 (UTC)
