In 18 volumes and over 3,000 pages, the Practical Encyclopedia of Good Decorating and Home Improvement, published in 1971, presented domestic tips on construction, crafting, and interior design. Brooklyn-based artist Mickalene Thomas came across the set in a thrift store, and the full-color illustrations had a direct impact on her work, including a new edition of Durham Press prints, Interiors, debuting this week at the 2017 Fine Art Print Fair in New York.
A new way to go to the movies. So proclaimed the 1972 opening day ads of Quad Cinema, the first multiplex in New York. In the first years of the downtown institution, Paula Scher personally appreciated it as a haven for foreign films, documentaries, and arty flicks. “The place was never glamorous,” she writes.
Texture, color, structure. Renowned fiber artist Sheila Hicks returns to these themes in her work, which bridges the worlds of art and design. Soft but contemporary, her oeuvre shows the convergence of influences from painting to weaving to sculpture. For an exhibition at Alison Jacques Gallery, “Stones of Peace,” Hicks has created new pieces in linen, silk, cotton, and synthetic fiber. “My exhibition is about limitless inquiry, doubtful forays into obscurity, and rejection of norms,” she writes.
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".
