Classical ballet was born in the royal courts of Old Europe. Every performance today contains at least traces of a lost world of courtiers, etiquette and aristocratic graces, even if the subject matter is magic swans or vampire bats. One king in particular, Louis XIV of France, was key to the art form’s early development — he studied daily with a personal ballet master and relished taking the central role in lavish productions. England’s Henry VIII had no role in this history.
The Russians are coming (back) to Fort Worth. And we love it. Let 2005 gold medalist Alex Kobrin get you ready for this year’s Cliburn Festival By Marilyn Bailey Russia is what started it all. Van Cliburn’s love of Russia, beginning when he saw some candy-colored onion domes in a children’s picture book at age 5. And the Russians’ great love of music, which launched the young American pianist into superstardom after his electrifying win at the first Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow in 1958.
In the gap between “Wild Spaces, Open Seasons: Hunting and Fishing in American Art,” which closed last month, and a major sculpture show that opens in a few days, the Amon Carter Museum of American Art is — as usual — brimming with fascinating smaller exhibits. In its upstairs photography galleries and in a couple of petite spaces that highlight smaller-scale shows, the Carter is featuring three exhibits of works by contemporary artists.
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".
