How do I cite wall text accompanying artwork at a museum?
To cite wall text, follow the MLA template of core elements. Provide a description of the wall text as the title of the source. This may include the title of the artwork the wall text explains and the artist who created it. If the work was part of an exhibit, include the exhibit’s name as the title of the container, followed by the date (opening and closing), and the museum and city as the location:
Wall text for A Warrior’s Story, Honoring Grandpa Blue Bird, by Lauren Good Day Giago. Unbound: Narrative Art of the Plains, 12 Mar.-4 Dec. 2016, National Museum of the American Indian, New York.
Wall text for central Caribbean tripod vessel in the form of a spectacled owl. Céramica de los Ancestros: Central America’s Past Revealed, 18 Apr. 2015-Dec. 2017, National Museum of the American Indian, New York.
Wall text for jar with feathered serpent design, National Museum of the American Indian, New York.
For additional resources on citing museum works, see the lesson plan for “Real-Life versus Digital Sources: Documenting a Museum Visit.”
