Current AfD[edit]

An article that may be of interest to members of this project has been nominated for deletion at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Luca Lazar (2nd nomination). -Ad Orientem (talk) 20:17, 8 April 2016 (UTC)

@Ad Orientem: I am trying to create an Article Alerts section for this wikiproject so that individual wp:AfDs need not be listed manually here. Any interest anyone? Ottawahitech (talk) 15:13, 11 August 2016 (UTC)please ping me
I'm intererested. To be honest, I had the impression this project was not very active any more, but if there is an attempt, to revive it, I'd participate. Mduvekot (talk) 15:42, 11 August 2016 (UTC)
Thank you for the ping. Unfortunately I am traveling at present and have little time for online activities. I hope this will improve in a few weeks. -Ad Orientem (talk) 20:00, 11 August 2016 (UTC)

Article alerts added[edit]

@Mduvekot and Ad Orientem: Thanks for responding.I have added Wikipedia:WikiProject Arts#Article alerts but need someone to place this new section in a more appropriate spot. Please let me know if you find this useful. Thanks. Ottawahitech (talk) 15:58, 12 August 2016 (UTC)please ping me

Europeana Art Challenge[edit]

The Europeana Art Challenge has kicked off and runs until 30th May.

The aim is to make sure that there are Wikidata entries and Wikipedia articles for each of the 300 artworks chosen from across Europe.

Details of the competition and how to sign up are here.

As of writing only 58 out of 300 artworks have an article in English (some examples below for ideas).

There's a points based system and prizes for the most points for each country.

At the moment, 155 of the artworks have articles in English, up from 49 at the start of the competition. Richard Nevell (WMUK) (talk) 14:43, 3 May 2016 (UTC)

Big revision by new editor[edit]

Hello, I was wondering if someone could look at Van Day Truex. It is so far out of my field of expertise that I don't feel qualified to work on it, but it clearly needs attention. The article was recently radically changed by a new COI editor, and I don't know whether his changes are an improvement. Tazerdadog (talk) 22:11, 28 June 2016 (UTC)

MfD for Wikipedia:Miscellany for deletion/Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Medusa (artwork)[edit]

@Xaosflux: I have just added an alerts section to this wikiproject. Any page which has this w-project banner on the talk page will automatically show up when it is nominated for deletion/ good article/ etc. Ottawahitech (talk) 16:07, 12 August 2016 (UTC)please ping me

Looking for a helper with formatting[edit]

Hello, i am looking for someone, whom i can ask things if i have difficulties with the english formatting of articles. I am writing especially on contemporary abstract art and would be glad if someone interested in this subject would contact me. Thank you! --Gyanda (talk) 11:42, 6 July 2016 (UTC)

Hi There, I need help in this article: This article is being repeatedly rejected - and the reason mentioned is:" This submission's references do not adequately show the subject's notability." R Nandakumar is a noted Indian art historian and cultural critic. He was granted the prestigious Senior Nehru Fellow at Teen Murti Bhawan, New Delhi. He was the first recipient of the Kesari Memorial Award Instituted by the Department of Culture, Government of Kerala in the year 2007, conferred in recognition of his contribution to the study of art and culture. Many a reputed scholars have cited his works in their articles and publications. His articles and research papers have been published by reputed magazines and publications. He has very limited online reference, however, I have made a list of citations by other reputed scholars to the likes of Christopher Pinney, with proper publication details and page number. Request your help here. Thank you, Tiru Tiru Tiru Tirutirutiru (talk) 03:16, 4 August 2016 (UTC)
