Note: there is a small amount of overlap – a few phrases – between the text of version 662629675 (the text I have just restored) and the "about" page of the museum from after it re-opened. Those phrases were added to our page before the closure, when the "about" page did not contain them. It seems that the museum may have drawn a little on our article. But if anyone should happen to find an older source containing phrases such as "one block from the Walters Art Museum" or "During its first decade, The Contemporary", then still more text may need to be removed.

Conflict of interest edit

At least one major contributor to this article appears to have a close personal or professional connection to the topic, and thus to have a conflict of interest. Conflict-of-interest editors are strongly discouraged from editing the article directly, but are always welcome to propose changes on the talk page (i.e., here). You can attract the attention of other editors by putting {{request edit}} (exactly so, with the curly parentheses) at the beginning of your request, or by clicking the link on the lowest yellow notice above. Requests that are not supported by independent reliable sources are unlikely to be accepted.

Please also note that our Terms of Use state that "you must disclose your employer, client, and affiliation with respect to any contribution for which you receive, or expect to receive, compensation." An editor who contributes as part of his or her paid employment is required to disclose that fact. Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 09:44, 27 September 2017 (UTC)Reply
