This new online reference page is one of the outcomes of a daylong ‘Edit-a-thon’ aimed at increasing the number of entries spotlighting women artists on Wikipedia, the top web resource for ‘common knowledge’. The event, which saw the participation of various prestigious institutions including AWA in Florence, Woman’s Studio Workshop in New York, the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, University of Wisconsin–Madison School of Library & Information Studies, the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington D.C., the University of Iowa’s Center for the Book and many more…

 

AWA called upon 17 volunteers to contribute, including scholars, museum guides, writers, artists and volunteers adopting 16 women artists whose lives and works are linked to Florence. Stay tuned for new edits or pages ex-novo on Suor Plautilla Nelli, Clara Peeters, Giovanna Fratellini, Elisabeth Chaplin, Mary Rogers Williams, Giovanna Garzoni, Ida Botti Scifoni, Beatrice Goretti Ancilotti, Arcangela Paladini, Irene Parenti Duclos, Felicie De Fauveau, Amalia Dupre, Louisa Grace Bartolini, Antonietta Brandeis, Costanza Francini and Helen Bayley.
