Unsolicited emails

TFAO, Resource Library's publisher, methodically requests from institutional sources news releases and other texts relating to exhibits of American representational art. TFAO keeps aware of selected sources' current and upcoming exhibits by reviewing their websites periodically. Because of TFAO's method of learning about upcoming and current exhibits, TFAO requests that sources please exclude from general media mailing lists. For more information on methodology of TFAO's request system please see National Calendar of Exhibitions.
