Seattle, WA (PRWEB) April 24, 2014

WhitePages, the leading provider of contact information for people and businesses in the U.S., today revealed the most popular last names in the country that are shared with American's most beloved household brands. Research found that a number of real Mr. Cleans (45 people) and Mrs. Butterworths (5,924 people) are living among us in the United States.

Based on data from Names.WhitePages.com, Campbell, Newman and McCormick are the three most popular last names associated with brands in the U.S., with Campbell at the top spot with over 488,000 residing in the U.S. Prince and Kraft round out the top five.

"Most of these brands have been around for generations and are ingrained into the fabric of American consumerism," says Liz Powell, names expert for WhitePages. "It's interesting to see just how these brand names for products like soup, applesauce, pasta and more are integrated into our country's fabric of last names."

In addition to the number of people with popular brand names for last names, WhitePages also researched which states in which they live. Not surprisingly, the majority of Hersheys live in Pennsylvania and the most Wrigleys live in Illinois.

ShortStack Announces New Integration with AWeber, Allowing for Seamless Data Management Apr 24, 2014 08:11AM

Reno, NV (PRWEB) April 24, 2014

ShortStack has announced an integration with AWeber that will help businesses looking to grow their email lists from their social campaigns. AWeber is an opt-in email marketing service with features that include email newsletters, autoresponders, and analytics reporting. ShortStack's integration with AWeber allows businesses to collect emails from promotions, sweepstakes, exclusive offers and other data-collecting campaigns that they run on their Facebook Page and website. The emails are collected straight into their existing AWeber subscriber lists.

"Email is a non-invasive way to reach your audience with valuable information about your company and product," said Jim Belosic, CEO, ShortStack. "If businesses aren't using their social campaigns to collect data and build leads, they're missing out on huge revenue-generating opportunities. Email remains one of the most valuable social tools for ROI because it's an integral part of someone's internet experience. All of ShortStack's integrations make it easy for businesses to capture leads from their social followers."

For businesses short on time and/or money, social campaigns are the ideal way to collect email addresses from social media followers. According to an Experian study, email marketing has an average ROI of $44.25 for every $1 spent. According to Salesforce, 44 percent of email recipients made at least one purchase last year based on a promotional email and roughly half of any business' email list will be active. An active list is one with recipients who either open or click on emails. The list of benefits and statistics that marketers just can't ignore is long.

In addition to AWeber, ShortStack integrates with several additional email marketing platforms including MailChimp, Highrise, Constant Contact and Webhook. The incorporation of AWeber allows businesses that are already using the email service to integrate their email marketing strategies with their social strategies.

ShortStack's pricing is based on the the size of the audience served, and one account can be used to create an unlimited number of social campaigns for as many Facebook Pages and external sites as a business needs. Paid plans start at $30/month. Businesses with audiences greater than 1,000,000 can email ShortStack to discuss enterprise-level pricing plans at enterprise(at)shortstacklab(dot)com.

A Focus on American Art of the Late 20th Century at the Addison Gallery This Spring Apr 24, 2014 08:11AM

Andover, MA (PRWEB) April 24, 2014

The Addison Gallery of American Art, located on the campus of Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts, will showcase a trio of exhibitions this spring that explore an important period of late 20th century American culture and art history, and reveal how art forms emerging from this time continue to influence art today. Carefully calibrated to complement and inform each other, the spring exhibitions include Loisaida: New York's Lower East Side in the '80s, which opened April 12, POP! Selections from the Collection, and Street Talk: Chris Daze Ellis in Dialogue with the Collection, both opening May 3. In conjunction with Street Talk, Chris Daze Ellis is the Addison's Edward E. Elson Artist-in-Residence for the spring. All three exhibitions will be on view through July 31.

"During the 1960s through 1980s, groups of American artists created work of immediacy and cultural relevance, beginning with the Pop artists of the early '60s, who appropriated mass-media imagery that reflected their time of economic prosperity," said Susan Faxon, the Addison's interim director. Later, as the country experienced political and financial upheaval, artists' use of imagery and methods of expression changed to reflect the realities of their own experiences, as seen in movements such as Graffiti and Loisaida in the 1970s and '80s. "The lessons from the powerful, complex, and ironic works produced during this intense and energetic time continue to inform the work of many of these same and other contemporary artists, as can be witnessed in Street Talk. With this fortunate confluence of exhibitions, we are looking forward to a lively, colorful, and thought-provoking season."

In celebration of the new exhibitions, the Addison invites the public to attend an Artist's Talk and Opening Reception on Sunday, May 4. At 2:00 p.m., Chris Daze Ellis will discuss his work and the exhibition Street Talk: Chris Daze Ellis in Dialogue with the Collection in Kemper Auditorium. The talk will be followed by the opening reception for the spring exhibitions, from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m., at the Addison. Both events are free and open to the public. For information, please visit addisongallery.org or call 978-749-4015.

On view this spring at the Addison will be:

Loisaida: New York's Lower East Side in the '80s, April 12–July 31
The decades leading up to the 1980s were a time of ferment and unrest in the country, triggered by events such as the Vietnam War, the bombing in Cambodia, the Kent State shootings, black power initiatives, gay riots at Stonewall Inn, and for the City of New York, the fiscal crisis in 1974. All of this set the stage in the early '80s for what the Boston-based, avant-garde collector John P. Axelrod (Phillips Academy Class of 1964) has called "a roiling environment for the emergence of new and exciting art forms." In Manhattan's Lower East Side, a diverse group of young, disaffected artists known as Loisaida (the colloquial Latino pronunciation of Manhattan's Lower East Side) worked in a wide range of media--painting, photography, performance, film, and poetry--developing works that focused unflinchingly on death, homosexuality, drugs, and societal decay. It is Loisaida's uniquely American expression that has captured Axelrod's most recent collecting enthusiasm and has resulted in the selection from his personal collection that is presented in this exhibition.

Generous support for this exhibition has been provided by the Morris Tyler Fund.

POP! Selections from the Collection, May 3–July 31
Characterized by bright, explosive, and accessible imagery, Pop Art was unlike any other movement of the 20th century in its instant popularity and its all-encompassing cultural impact. Emerging in the U.S. in the early 1960s, a time of unprecedented economic prosperity, Pop Art explored the image world of a rapidly growing consumer society. Taking inspiration from advertising, pulp magazines, billboards, movies, television, comic strips, and shop windows, and basing their techniques and style on aspects of media and mass reproduction, artists such as Roy Lichtenstein, Claes Oldenburg, James Rosenquist, and Andy Warhol blurred the lines between art and commodity in humorous, witty, and often ironic works that can be seen as both celebrations and critiques of popular culture. POP! includes prints, sculptures, paintings, and artists' books drawn from the permanent collection, many never before exhibited at the Addison.

Street Talk: Chris Daze Ellis in Dialogue with the Collection, May 3–July 31
A member of the "second generation" of New York graffiti artists, Chris Ellis--best known by his street name, Daze--has been hailed as one of the most important 'writers' of his time. Daze began his career in graffiti as a teenager in the 1970s, tagging subway cars alongside Crash, Seen, Lady Pink, and Futura. Turning his focus from trains to canvas in the early 1980s, Daze has been one of the most successful graffiti artists of his generation to transition from street to studio. Using spray paint in combination with the more traditional media of oil and acrylic to capture the energy and essence of the urban scene, Daze's large-scale paintings are a provocative blend of spontaneity and control, abstraction and representation. This exhibition presents recent works in juxtaposition with a group of paintings, prints, and photographs chosen by the artist from the Addison's permanent collection. Revealing intriguing and unexpected resonances in artistic approach, theme, and subject matter, this conversation not only sets Daze's work within the context of American art history, but also provides new insight to some of the museum's familiar favorites.

Generous support for this exhibition has been provided by the Mark Rudkin Fund.
