Wiki letter w cropped.svg Scope[edit]

This project aims to coordinate the sharing of resources between the Philadelphia Museum of Art (PMA) and the Wikimedia community. PMA's mission as a museum aligns closely with Wikipedia’s goal to provide "free access to the sum of all human knowledge."


Wednesday, March 25th from 5:30-8:30 the Philadelphia Museum of Art will host an edit-a-thon to add and improve articles on African American artists in conjunction with the exhibition Represent: 200 Years of African American Art.
Information on the edit-a-thon can be found here: Meetup/Philadelphia/Represent_African_American_Artists. The event is open to the public and free after Museum admission, which is pay-what-you-wish on Wednesdays after 5pm EST.
New and experienced editors are welcome. Newcomers are encouraged to attend the first hour of the event for a basic training session, led by Mary Mark Ockerbloom, Wikipedian in residence at the Chemical Heritage Foundation. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own laptops and power cords.
