Two giant murals by street artist Shepard Fairey loom over the streets of Philadelphia’s Center City: One features James Anderson, a former Los Angeles gang member who now works to keep others out of prison; the other depicts Amira Mohamed, a formerly incarcerated architecture student. Commissioned by Mural Arts Philadelphia, the works are part of a project designed to give a face, literally, to the phenomenon of mass incarceration in the United States.
Artist Qinmin Liu knows you hate commercial air travel. Rising costs, shrinking legroom, and general indignities—like, oh, the occasional customer getting dragged off a plane—have led to growing discontent among those who can’t afford first class. So if you’re soon headed to events like Art Basel Miami Beach, Untitled San Francisco, or New York’s Armory Show, Liu has come up with another option for you: Angelhaha, her very own airline.
If you’ve been in a coma since last night, you’re waking up to the news that a painting attributed to Leonardo da Vinci, the last one in private hands, smashed every record and sold at Christie’s New York for the indescribable sum of $450.3 million. But while you’ve been snoozing, the world has been tweeting and Instagramming all sorts of reactions, from awed to salty to quippy. We’ve combed through the social platforms for some of the best reactions from the art world, and a few from outside it.
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".
