Hey there, it’s me Kristina, your exhibitions intern here at MFA!
I wanted to write a bit of a refresher on how to submit to our Member News Blog. I know sometimes it’s difficult to navigate the internet, so I wanted to compile resources that will help you communicate with us in the long run.
The first thing you need to know, is that you can submit all your information/news to us using this google form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScGQKn6QADZZJNUZmsfMIRc0DRd3nfBUhW-CEdppMbk1lHBAA/viewform?usp=pp_url
We pull directly from this form, and try to use every bit of information you give us in our blog post. The more direct and in detail you fill this out, the better your news will appear.
Secondly, you are able to submit your news to us via email firstname.lastname@example.org. If you decide to send us your information this way, we need it in a concise format.
Think of it in these terms: Who, What, When, Where, Why, How.
Or, think of it like this: Event Name, Tell us about the Event (juried, invitational, etc.), Give important dates (reception, start and end dates), Image of your artwork with the title.
Finally, we receive questions all the time whether the artists should write statements about their news. I say, yes! Give us all the information you want and we will work to fit it into your news on our blog. This is a chance for you to brag about your accomplishments and achievements, in a blog that is easily shareable to all.
Word of caution: If you send us your news incoherently, or unorganized, then it will be difficult for us to include it in our Member News. This is why we encourage the use of our google form.
Hopefully this helps, and I am looking forward to seeing all of our Member’s news!
