Launched in 2014, Art+Feminism is a campaign to improve coverage of women and the arts on Wikipedia, and to encourage feminist editorship. On March 29, 2019, in honor of Women's History Month, join us for a communal updating of Wikipedia entries on feminist artists, feminist curatorial practices, feminist art pedagogy, and other subjects related to contemporary art/architecture/visual culture and feminism absent from Wikipedia.

Tablets will be available, or bring a laptop with you!

In Special Collections[edit]

Information resources on the subjects listed below are held by Penn State's Special Collections Library, which means they can't leave the secure reading room. Fortunately, Special Collections is located right next door to our meetup in the Mann Room. If you want to work with these materials, you'll need to register online for a research account here, and take a trip to the reading room. Just ask one of the librarians if you need any help with this. And come back to the meetup when you're done for an end-of-day wrap-up.

Designers, illustrators, book artists:
