National Calendar of Art
with an emphasis on American
at museums and other non-profit
How TFAO updates calendars
- On a monthly basis, TFAO reviews the Calendar Update
Schedule (see A-C D-G H-L M-Q R-S T-Z)
to identify selected museums and other sources for which their follow-up
month is expiring. TFAO then reviews the current and future exhibition
sections of Web sites of the targeted sources. For each current and upcoming
exhibition, TFAO first searches to see
if similar articles and essays have been published in Resource Library
from all sources, and if further coverage is deemed to be desirable. For
material previously not covered, TFAO determines if exhibition coverage
will offer readers important insight into American
representational art topics not adequately developed, and important
biographical information on artists as explained in submitting
materials and the Creating
new listings from sources other than Resource Library section in Distinguished
Artists. Then, for each exhibit TFAO wants to tag for later follow
up, TFAO lists in the page for the appropriate year and month in the National Calendar of Exhibitions the name of the
institution, name of the exhibit and its opening and closing dates.
- TFAO then updates the Schedule's listings for the targeted
sources with new dates by listing on the schedule either: (1) the furthest
exhibition opening month, or (2) another month which TFAO deems important
for follow up. If TFAO has not published an article from a listed museum
during the past five years, the museum is deleted from the Calendar Update
How TFAO uses the National
Calendar of Exhibitions
- Early in each month of the current year TFAO reviews
the calendar for all of the listed exhibition openings for the prior month.
TFAO checks it's list of published exhibition articles and essays in the
sub-index page for each related museum to determine if Resource Library
has already published an article or essay concerning each calendar listing.
- Then TFAO checks to see if similar articles have been
published in Resource Library from other sources, and if further
information is deemed to be desirable. Using TFAO's catalogs
for guidance, TFAO concentrates on adding content where the body of knowledge
previously published online is weakest.
- If TFAO decides to seek information to enable texts and
images to be published in Resource Library, TFAO sends by email
a request for exhibition information to
the source. TFAO's page on submitting materials
explains requirements for publishing a Resource Library article
or essay for an exhibition.
- TFAO sends requests after the end of the exhibition opening
month to allow museums time to gather .jpg images and texts such as gallery
guides, brochures or catalogues, exhibition wall panels and labels, as
well as press releases.
