America's Distinguished Artists
a national registry of historic artists
Creating new listings from sources other than Resource Library
These steps are taken by TFAO volunteers leading to nomination of artists and URL links for inclusion in the America's Distinguished Artists catalogue.
An online search for a particular artist may lead to a website containing names of many other artists. It's worthwhile to check the names listed on that site against the names listed in the America's Distinguished Artists catalogue. Hundreds of artists have been discovered through reviewing biographies of artists from other online sources. Examples include:
The 2015 catalogue audit revealed that all links to artist biographical information from the North Dakota Council on the Arts were broken. An inquiry to the NDCA revealed that the the online artist archive was removed from its website. On October 27, 2015, Amy Schmidt, Public Information Officer, Accessibility Coordinator, North Dakota Council on the Arts, firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com, wrote that she would email available information for particular artists on request, and on October 28, 2015 further wrote that TFAO may append the information in Editor's notes for Resource Library articles citing individual artists as long as applicable references are included.
Recognition to volunteers
