Location: Online

In honor of Women’s History Month, the Walters Art Museum invites visitors to participate in a month-long event that will increase the visibility of women and gender nonbinary artists in the Walters collection. In collaboration with Art+Feminism, the Walters will provide information and instructions to enable visitors to make edits to pages on Wikipedia, the tenth most visited site on the internet. This is an “asynchronous” event, meaning that throughout the month, you can make edits to Wikipedia pages connected to our collection at your leisure.

Join a collective WIkipedia edit-a-thon and increase information about women and gender nonbinary artists in the Walters Art Museum’s collection.

This program will begin with training on editing, fact-checking, and research process followed by open-ended participation. Museum curators will be available beginning at 2 p.m. to respond to questions about the collection.
