  +
  +
As one of the internet’s most frequently visited reference sites, Wikipedia serves as a starting point for many interested in learning about art, history, and the lives of artists. Yet many women artists whose important works are displayed in museums and galleries around the world have incomplete Wikipedia articles or no article at all. Sculptors are even less represented than painters in Wikipedia, increasing the likelihood of women sculptors being excluded. This problem can be corrected. Wikipedia is an openly editable resource, meaning that we can all help improve the quantity, quality, and accuracy of Wikipedia entries.
  +
  +
During this event, attendees of all experience levels will learn the basics of how to edit Wikipedia by creating or updating articles related to the history of fifty women sculptural artists in the United States.
  +
  +
This event is cohosted by the Smithsonian American Art Museum and the Smithsonian American Women’s History Initiative. No Wikipedia editing experience is necessary; training will be provided. No background in art history is required.

|description = Love or leave it, Wikipedia is THE historical resource of our time. If you’ve ever wondered how to edit articles and even create new articles, join us for this free edit-a-thon. An expert Wikipedian will teach us the basics! We’ll start by editing articles related to the Peale and its own history and explore histories/articles that might help to tell a more complete story of our collective histories. Absolutely no prior experience is necessary. Bring a laptop, and be empowered to start changing the narrative about the who, what, and why of history.
