by BWW News Desk - Oct 30, 2013

CARMEL, Calif., Oct. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ Mixed within the campus scuttlebutt of football rankings, sorority fundraisers, and impending winter break, is talk of a rather unique College sweepstakes which is tweaking student interest from coast to coast. Imagine a sweepstakes that offers such disparate prizes as: a genius to do your homework for a night, a hat worn by Bing Crosby, an in-person serenade from rap prodigy Warren Lotas, or a napkin touched by Liza Minnelli! These are some of the prizes offered up via the Pine Bros Dumb-luck College Sweepstakes Game. The contest, which is open to all college students in America ('You needn't even speak English!') is sponsored by iconic throat drop company Pine Brothers, which was first launched in America in 1870, and is renowned for their 'softish' throat drops. It is part of a big push by Pine Brothers to introduce their softish throat drops to college-aged consumers nationwide. 'Pine Bros are America's first ever commercially produced throat drops, and have been trusted by American families for over 140 years,' says Pine Brothers CEO Victoria Knight-McDowell. 'Nothing on the market soothes your throat as effectively or deliciously as Pine Bros, and we want college kids, with their hectic life styles, to know this.' (more...)

VENETIAN GLASS BY CARLO SCARPA to go on Display at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, 11/5VENETIAN GLASS BY CARLO SCARPA to go on Display at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, 11/5
by BWW News Desk - Nov 1, 2013

Venetian Glass by Carlo Scarpa: The Venini Company, 1932-1947 at The Metropolitan Museum of Art is devoted to the work in glass of the influential Italian architect Carlo Scarpa (1906–1978). Scarpa created a unique and multifaceted body of work in architecture and design. In 1932, while in his mid-twenties, he was hired by Paolo Venini, founder of Venini Glassworks, to be an artistic consultant to the company. Until 1947, he worked closely with Venini master glass blowers and Mr. Venini himself to create more than two dozen styles, in the process pioneering techniques, silhouettes, and colors that thoroughly modernized the ancient tradition of glass blowing. The exhibition presents the results of this unique collaboration, featuring nearly 300 carefully selected works that highlight Scarpa's significant contribution to the art of Venetian glass.
