National Calendar of Art
with an emphasis on American
at museums and other non-profit
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
- * indicates inquiry made by TFAO to exhibiting
- ** indicates inquiry made by TFAO to organizing
- Date in smaller type size following asterisk is the online publishing
invitation date from Resource Library to the copyright holder of
scholarly texts relating to the exhibit.
