Young Preservationist Happy Hour meets Wikipedia
Friday, July 22, 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm
Midtown Yacht Club, 15 East Centre Street, Baltimore, MD 21202
Despite the name and its location just across the street from the historic Peabody Conservatory, the Midtown Yacht Club is an unpretentious neighborhood bar with affordable drinks (all beer & cocktails will be 50 cents off all evening) and a solid Tex-Mex influenced bar menu. Come early to grab your beer and get settled so you can enjoy our talk on exciting new partnerships between Wikipedia and cultural heritage organizations at 6:30 pm.
From the British Library to the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis, cultural heritage organizations are partnering with the Wikipedian community to share collections of historic photographs, document public art, celebrate local landmarks, and more. Join us for a short talk by Sarah Stierch–the new Wikipedian-in-Residence for the Smithsonian Archives of American Art–starting at 6:30 pm or just drop by for a beer when you can.
