Eyes Needed[edit]

Re: User:Hexatekin/sandbox/JNH: I would appreciate if someone was able to review this article about a well-known contemporary art archivist and add it if they deem it to meet Wikipedia's standards. Let me know if you have questions! Hexatekin (talk) 17:51, 22 October 2015 (UTC)

Hello User:Hexatekin - This is a fascinating, well written article on an important archivist. As a relatively new editor, I'm still becoming familiar with wiki-policies & standards, but I'm happy to help out if I can! Some feedback: there are no citations in the following sections: Education, Biography, and Appraisals. Please let me know if you would like me to work on these areas, and if it should be moved to article space first or if it's permissible to work in your sandbox, or if you prefer me to send you links if I can find them. Have a happy new year! Netherzone (talk) 18:01, 28 December 2015 (UTC)
Hello again, just found a few possibly useful resources. Here is a citation re: JNH article Education section: Transcript of AS-AP Panel at CAA Conference, February, 2008 (College Arts Association), posted on internet site: Art Spaces Archives Project on Aug. 5, 2010. (Access date, Dec. 28, 2015) URL: And a citation relevant to the Biography section: won lifetime achievement award as an archivist, The Acker Awards for Achievement in The Avant Garde, 2014 URL:!nyc-awards/canh And two links re: J.N.

Great Netherzone! I have a conflict of interest in publishing this article myself, but if you look it over judging by Wikipedia's Core content policies and deem it meets the policies, than you or another editor could publish it as a fair balance of the COI policy. What do you think? Hexatekin (talk) 03:33, 2 January 2016 (UTC)
Happy to help, Hexatekin. Do you suggest that be done thru the Articles for Creation, or as a Move from your sandbox, or another method? I'm a fairly new editor, and want to make certain it it done correctly. Netherzone (talk) 17:42, 4 January 2016 (UTC)
I think that a move from my sandbox to a published article would be fine, then we could solicit editors to review / take a look. In its current form I believe its publishable, and if you think so too, go for it. Hexatekin (talk) 17:38, 6 January 2016 (UTC)
Done! I will add those two citations I mentioned above.Netherzone (talk) 21:34, 6 January 2016 (UTC)

Flesh out[edit]

I'd created Michael Lucero (artist) since there was some interest in this person via my institution's edit history, so I'm hoping that this person will return and help flesh out the article. (It's an IP, so I have no idea who it could have been, since the IP is used by pretty much anyone who visits the LVA.) Just in case they don't return or look for this person, I figured I'd mention this here in case one of you guys are familiar with this person and want to add more information.

If anyone here has a DeviantArt account, would you please consider posting this link at the main forum there? I would be very grateful. Anna Frodesiak (talk) 20:08, 4 November 2015 (UTC)

Artists' books (category)[edit]

Could I please get a feed-back here? Why "books" in plural ? Thanks! Bikkit ! (talk) 08:53, 9 December 2015 (UTC)


I'd like to propose a few changes to the look of the project page. I don't want to be unkind, but the design introduced here by User:Ganymead makes my eyes bleed. I has kept me from joining the project. Would anyone object if I changed it to something neutral, like this? Mduvekot (talk) 19:28, 14 January 2016 (UTC)
