ArtPrize, touted as the nation’s largest public art show, opened Wednesday in Grand Rapids, Mich., and this year features five local artists from the more than 1,500 who are participating. Now in its ninth year as an independent, international art competition, ArtPrize offers $500,000 in prizes; half of which is handed out through public vote and the other half by juried awards. Artists compete by placing their art in 175 participating venues in downtown Grand Rapids.
Since the beginning of time, we have been telling stories. True tales that define us. Stories that regale us, shock us, and make others laugh and cry. We empathize. We can relate. And a sense of community is born. In Toledo, that comradeship comes alive through Spoken, a live storytelling event founded in 2014 and hosted quarterly at the historic Ohio Theatre on Lagrange Street in Toledo’s Polish Village.
But then again, Hagan is overshadowed by most subjects he paints. Known as the Barn Artist, the Ohio native goes big or he doesn't really go. He travels the country painting barns, silos, high school gymnasiums and other larger-than-life canvases. His latest project is no exception. He landed this past week on the property of Ron and Bonnie Schimming.
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".
