Art in the High Desert isn’t messing around. The top-end art show opens its 10th year on Friday on the west bank of the Deschutes River in the Old Mill District, bringing 115 artists from 28 states for three days of art viewing and buying — and little else. “(It’s) keeping focused on one thing. We’re not trying to be a family fair. We’re not a music fair. We’re not a beer fair, a wine tasting. We are strictly about art,” said Carla Fox, co-founder of the festival with her husband, Dave Fox.
ASHLAND - Colette Hansen's Oregon Shakespeare Festival habit began in 1973, when she was a teenager.Then living in Sacramento, California, Hansen, now of Bend, attended her first Oregon Shakespeare Festival with a friend and her friend's family, heading north to take in a performance of the absurdist classic "Waiting for Godot.""They always drove up, every summer, or fall, and they took me with them," she said.
Local art promoter Billye Turner saw a banner in downtown Bend last month that read "Stand up for what you believe." Part of the Downtown Bend Association's Bend JOY Project - "an experiment and a mission to bring joy in meaningful ways to keep our community happy, strong and beautiful," according to downtownbend.org - the banner inspired Turner to ask Central Oregon artists for works rooted in the things they believe.
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".
