The tall, spindly golden spires at many Eastern temples, mosques and churches are being replicated in the pavilion of the Smithsonian's Arthur M. Sackler Gallery in Washington D.C.Nearly 50 spires of various heights—from one to 13 feet—are connected by a maze of thread in the monumental installation by the acclaimed contemporary Indian artist Subodh Gupta.
When the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery first created an immersive Tibetan Buddhist Shrine Room, with flickering candle-like lights and scores of golden Buddha statues and artifacts seven years ago, it became quite popular. “People came,” says Debra Diamond, curator of South and Southeast Asian Art at the Freer|Sackler. “Some people came once a week for three months. One staff member came every day, meditating. “People wrote a lot of comments that said, ‘this helped me slow down,’” Diamond says.
The pink has returned to George Washington’s cheeks. The dress sword in his hand glistens anew. There are now buttons, and a kind of shape to the black suit that was once a murky blob. And what’s that in the background, a rainbow? The 18-month restoration of Gilbert Stuart’s famous 1796 full length portrait of a 64-year-old George Washington is the centerpiece of the reopening of the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery’s "America’s Presidents" in Washington, D.C.
A mass shooting intro in tomorrow's "American Horror Story: Cult" has undergone "substantial cuts" in light of the Las Vegas massacre, FX says. (The unedited version will be available on demand - as guns are).
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".
