Editor's note: The Dallas arts scene is changing. To mark the new year, our writers describe the most exciting developments in their fields of expertise and predict what might happen next. What's going on: Dallas-Fort Worth is home to one of the most impressive concentrations of important art museums in the country. With buildings by Louis Kahn, Philip Johnson, Edward Larrabee Barnes, Renzo Piano and Tadao Ando, the architecture itself is world-class, and the collections don't lag that far behind.
The Amon Carter Museum of American Art is the final venue of an exhibition designed collaboratively by four private museums in Memphis, Omaha, Shelburne, Vt., and Fort Worth. "Wild Spaces, Open Seasons: Hunting and Fishing in American Art" is the first ambitious exhibition to deal with this subject — one that all four venues figured would be popular with the outdoor recreational set.
The Kimbell also provides excellent information about their British home as well as about the prints by other artists from which Zurbarán derived a good many of the poses and details of costume in the finished paintings. What do they represent? The answer is fascinating because they derive from the Old Testament (Genesis 49:1-28) and represent a father, whose name was Jacob (who was son of Isaac and the grandson of Abraham), and his 12 sons (by two wives and two slave girls!
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".
