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,

A feature of the show will be a room devoted to work done by the International Group, a body of artists native of foreign birth, many of whom are already well known to the public of New York through individual work shown at this and other galleries.
