How do I cite a museum exhibit?

To cite a museum exhibit, follow the MLA template of core elements.  Include the exhibit’s name as the title of your source, followed by the opening and closing dates of the exhibit and the museum and city as the location:

Unbound: Narrative Art of the Plains. 12 Mar.–4 Dec. 2016, National Museum of the American Indian, New York.

If the exhibit features the work of a specific artist, begin your entry with the artist in the “author” element of the template:

Cave, Nick. Until. 15 Oct. 2016–Aug. 2017, Mass MOCA, North Adams.
