I found no significant coverage. It also partially reads like an advertisement. SL93 (talk) 11:53, 25 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

  • Note: This discussion has been included in the deletion sorting lists for the following topics: Arts, Museums and libraries, and Michigan. SL93 (talk) 11:54, 25 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  • Borderline G11 that's copied from here so G12 is also an option Delete Unable to identify ORG-compliant sourcing, mostly local coverage of exhibits, event listings and staff departures. Star Mississippi 13:11, 25 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  • Keep The PROD tag that was based on the false assertion that the text was copied from the referenced link was removed by an admin As noted in the removal, there was no overlap whatsoever between the article and the source, so the COPYVIO assertion by two different editors is utterly mystifying. I've added more text and sources. The sources are not all local, as there is significant statewide coverage. At first I thought that this might be a case for redirecting to the existing article subsection Lansing#Lansing Art Gallery but I now think that a stand-alone article is appropriate. Banks Irk (talk) 17:00, 27 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
    The source says Visual arts exhibitions, statewide art competitions, lease/purchase program and gallery shop, Holiday Art Market, referrals/information resource, ArtSmart - after school art classes, Art Scholarship Alert - high school art exhibition, Summer visual arts camp and guided field trips. The article as of this edit said Serving as a multipurpose space within the community, the gallery currently offers a meeting place for other arts organizations, exhibition facilities for Michigan artists and membership for individuals, families, small businesses and large corporations as well as statewide open competitions, education outreach, "Art Smart" after school classes, Art Scholarship Alert, high school competition, summer art camp, Saturday workshops, artist demonstrations and lectures. down to the same capitalization/spacing on Art Smart, Art Scholarship. The text was even closer in this version which should probably be RevDel'ed if the article remains. @Primefac thoughts on that? Its borderline, but there's clearly copy pasting going on. Star Mississippi 17:08, 27 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
    If the phrasing is a group of items, i.e. a list, that cannot reasonably written in any other meaningful way (e.g. "cat, dog, horse" vs "horse, dog, cat") then it's not really something that can by copyrightable. Primefac (talk) 20:00, 27 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
    Thanks @Primefac. That makes sense. The exact same capitalization was what threw me off. Seemed to be more branding that natural use of capitals, spacing but it's all subjective Star Mississippi 20:09, 27 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
