Art-lovers, Wikipedia obsessives, and shutterbugs, rejoice! In February, you’ll have the chance to be a part of an extraordinary effort to capture museum collections the world over to better illustrate Wikipedia articles. Wikipedia Loves Art is a scavenger hunt and free content photography contest coordinated with the Brooklyn Museum, the Indianapolis Museum of Art, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the V&A and now The Film Society of Lincoln Center. While yes, it’s true that we don’t have any art on our walls, we’re thrilled to be taking part in this project spearheaded by the Brooklyn Museum.

Check out the rules of the overall contest here. There are lots of ways to get involved. You can go scavenging with a team at one of the museums listed above, or you can work on a Wikipedia entry that needs some help. To play for a Film Society of Lincoln Center prize, submit photographs of historic movie house architecture–i.e., iconic movie houses, surviving movie palaces, drive-ins, crumbling remnants, projection equipment and other aspects of movie house architecture. These can be nationwide–at the Ziegfeld, or at an Egyptian theater in LA, or perhaps you could visit Bud Cadell’s favorite, the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, TX. It’s all about celebrating classic movie houses, and coming up with great images for Wikipedia. An in-house panel will pick a winner who will receive a five-film series pass and a subscription to Film Comment magazine.

The event is planned to run for the whole month of February 2009, so get your cameras ready and stay tuned for more details on activities related to the project.
