With the arts under attack in America, many educators are fighting back to make sure that art, music and dance remain in public schools. Grand Vision Foundation is among those taking the fight for arts education to the forefront of its community. The organization has quietly and persistently delivered a deep and robust arts education program to more than 1,800 fourth- and fifth-grade students.
In a modest San Pedro neighborhood overlooking the Port of Los Angeles sits a small house with a sizable ambition. Each semester Syracuse University in New York chooses three students from the masters in fine arts program to come to California, reside in the Turner House, and participate in an intensive study program. On Dec. 2 Michael Stearns’ Studio 347 opens SU: LA New Beings, an exhibition by Syracuse University MFA candidates Hollie Lyko, Mika Mollenkopf and Preston Van Allen.
Each visit to the National Watercolor Society unearths unexpected gems. Brilliant jewel-toned paintings hang beside the somber image of a priest kneeling in prayer. The aged, grizzled face of a homeless man hangs on a wall just around the corner from a jolly Santa. The 97th International Exhibition is a particularly beautiful show consisting of works from masters in the field of watercolor. Twice each year artists from across the country and around the world gather to exhibit their work.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
