      New York, New York

      Dear Sir:
      We have noticed that this museum's mention in your current calendar is incorrect as it lists only two exhibitions, one of which was current in April and has long since been discontinued. We would particularly like the Wood Block Exhibition to be mentioned in this calendar for the benefit of Philadelphia readers.

      A list of the current exhibitions that should be mentioned include:
      Fifth Annual Exhibition of Block Prints assembled by the Ink Print Club of Philadelphia
      International Summer Show opening June 12 through October 1st
      AUDAC Exhibition of Decorative Arts and Crafts, continued because of its extreme popularity until September 1st
      Exhibition of the newly acquired Collection of Russian National Art
      The Wiborg Collection of Modern Masters

      Will you please correct your list with the above additions.

      Very sincerely yours,
      E.L.M. TAGGART
      Director, Publicity Department

    "Hi, I am trying to find the name of the artist who took and is in the photograph that follows- http://www.brooklynmuseum.org/opencollection/exhibitions/664/Global_Feminisms_Remix/image/216/Global_Feminisms_Remix._%7C08032007_-_03032008%7C._Installation_view. I believe the artist takes pictures of herself dressed as a man but then exposes her femaleness, as in the photo of her dressed as an Ascetic Jew exposing her breast. Can you help me find her information? Thanks in advance- Aimee Record"
