A great work of art from 1875 thatâ€™s never been seen in any museum, almost never seen at all, sat on the wall of a small gallery at the recent Frieze New York art fair. The artist, Bearâ€™s Heart, was one of 72 Cheyenne, Kiowa, and Arapaho prisoners of war found guilty without trial and taken by train south and east away from their native lands of Colorado, Kansas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and the Texas Panhandle and brought to a prison camp at Fort Marion in St. Augustine, Florida.
I love art by men. In fact, letâ€™s start using that as a category; call all the group shows of art by all or mostly men â€œMenâ€™s Art,â€? the same way we do when it comes to â€œWomenâ€™s Art,â€? â€œBlack Art,â€? â€œOutsider Art,â€? and all the rest. Maybe that will help level the playing field â€” a bit, anyway. Or maybe men could just sit out exhibiting their art for the next 24 months, as we endure this extended political emergency more in need than ever of other voices.
In the eighties, I lived three buildings down from where Eddie Boros—a scruffy, bearded, shoeless neighborhood character who seemed vaguely scary but who never did anything that actually scared me—built what came to be called the “Tower of Toys” at the corner of East 6th Street and Avenue B. I often saw Eddie in the Yemeni grocery, where he’d buy individual cigarettes or cans of tuna.
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".
