"Snow Hill," a late, surreal work by Andrew Wyeth on view in a major retrospective exhibit in Chadds Ford, contains images from a real life and a painting life entwined like genes in a germ cell.Like magic, muses from three-quarters of a century dance around a maypole on a height overlooking a dazzling white landscape: a man in a jackbooted German military uniform, his wife in folk garb, another man with a hook for a left hand, a blonde woman in a winter coat, purse slung over her shoulder,...
Just when I was crafting a complete sentence, a fluffy puppy flashed before my eyes. This was no hallucination, however welcome an imaginary furry friend would be on deadline. The pup appeared in cuddly living color on the wall in the newsroom.Five flat-screen video monitors hang in my office. Different programs play all day long, with the sound off. Sometimes a screen or two is tuned to cable or local TV news channels.
Within the past few weeks, gifted impressionist Jim Bongartz traded paintbrushes for plastic cups in the service of a technique called pour painting.This is a visual evolution from representationally rendered settings in Spain, or a series based on photographs snapped at the psychological moment in traffic or on Philadelphia streets.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
