In this riverfront town in western Kentucky, art isn't just a luxury. It's a lifeline. It helped salvage one of the city's oldest neighborhoods with an artist relocation program that lured talent from around the country. And art, in the form of 52 murals and a national museum devoted to quilting (much cooler than it sounds – I promise), served as a shot in the arm for downtown revitalization, sparing the historic area from the fate of many a small city destroyed by suburban sprawl.
Those photos from that amazing trip you took deserve a better showcase than your smartphone. Immortalize the cream of your camera's crop by printing it on canvas and hanging it on a wall. Or put that shot of the mountains at golden hour on the cover of a throw pillow. Too hard to narrow down which vacay pics to preserve? Turn them into a series of magnets or make a canvas collage. The Las Vegas-based company CanvasPop can do the crafty part for you.
Wisconsin’s largest city has many charms: Summerfest, a less crowded lakefront, beer. More beer. But Brew City has a seriously good art scene, too, and it knows how to show it off during Gallery Night and Day. Four weekends a year, dozens of venues throw what feels like a big, communal party celebrating the visual arts on Friday night and Saturday. The next one takes place Oct. 20-21. If you like art and/or Milwaukee, mark your calendar and make the trip 90 miles north.
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".
