San Antonio Museum of Art – Movie Metal – In celebration of the San Antonio Museum of Art’s 40th Anniversary this year, the Museum announced the opening of a unique pop-up installation called, ‘Movie Metal.’ ‘Movie Metal’ is a one-of-a-kind pop culture attraction that perfectly aligned with Spring Break and offered an activity for the whole family to safely enjoy. The installation brings film to life through the display of several fan-favorite characters as well as iconic vehicles from popular film and television shows. By popular demand, the ‘Movie Metal’ installation has been officially extended to June 2021. In the month of March alone, Noisy Trumpet’s public relations team has secured 34 broadcast, print and online hits combined, resulting in over 6.1M impressions.
Thomas J. Henry – TxDOT tallied over 39,000 commercial vehicle crashes, 613 deaths and another 6,204 more people were injured in 2019 on Texas roads and highways. The U.S Department of Transportation’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration Report also reveals that Texas leads the nation with the largest truck crashes. In an effort to shift liability from big trucking and insurance companies to individual consumers, a new legislative bill (Texas House Bill 19) was proposed by Texas State Representative John Leach. If passed this bill would:
- Force victims involved in big rig accidents to take legal action against truck drivers first, before they can hold trucking companies liable
- Prevent the victim’s attorney from presenting discovery evidence into a trial that would incriminate the driver’s employer, the trucking companies who hire and oversee them
- Increase automotive insurance premiums for victims
In opposition to this bill, Attorney Thomas J. Henry launched the “Keep Texas Safe” campaign. The campaign aims to raise public awareness and urges Texans to sign a petition to prevent the controversial bill from passing. Noisy Trumpet assisted Mr. Henry in his public relations efforts for this campaign, yielding 40 broadcast and online hits, which resulted in 55.5M impressions.
