As the Philadelphia Asian American Film Festival begins its 10th year, it will present 40 feature films and another 40 short films over 11 days. Most are new, contemporary films, but this year the festival is paying particular attention to Asian-American groundbreakers in Hollywood. The opening event is a rare screening of “The Dragon Painter,” a silent film made almost a century ago starring Sessue Hayakawa.
One of the most prominent living artists in the U.S. right now — Chuck Close, 77, with a career spanning six decades — has never had a major show in Philadelphia. While "Chuck Close Photographs," now at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, is a large and meaty show with 90 images created over 50 years, it is not quite the definitive retrospective Close might deserve. But it comes close.
It has been five years since the Barnes Foundation moved its art galleries from Lower Merion to the Benjamin Franklin Parkway in Philadelphia. This week, to mark the occasion, it is debuting its in-house music group, the Barnes Ensemble. It's a relatively small launch for the Barnes Ensemble; right now, it consists of 20 musicians, all of them string players, presenting modern chamber music. It will be scaled up in the coming months.

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".
