In recent years, Wikipedia GLAM (Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums) Edit-a-thons have taken place at prestigious institutions such as the New York Public Library, the Smithsonian, the British Library, and numerous presidential and university libraries. At these edit-a-thons, volunteers new and experienced come together (often in service of a theme such as Art+Feminism) to create or expand Wikipedia articles. They have the opportunity to draw on some of the highest quality library and archives collections in the world.
This Sunday, June 29, from 11 to 5, the Phillips, in partnership with Wikimedia DC, is hosting a Made in the USA-themed edit-a-thon to create and expand Wikipedia articles on artists in the exhibition and American artists in our permanent collection. What better way to celebrate the upcoming Independence Day holiday than by jumping into the largest democratic experiment on the Internet?
