On this weeks roundup I discovered the awesome site Pruned, Trevor Paglen made a t-shirt, and the Whitney joins the growing list of museums that are laying off staff. Have a good weekend everyone.

RT : artnetdotcom Whitney Museum has “quietly laid off 4% of its staff,” eight full- and part-time employees.

The Bike Film Festival began yesterday. Check out what’s going on including their show at the MCA Warehouse tonight.

Pruned has a nice collection of Soil maps of Africa.

Checking out a cool proposal for a new civic plaza in Chicago. It looks a little too comfortable for public sculpture.

Ben van Berkel’s Burnham Plan Centennial Pavilion will close this week in Millennium Park for some much needed tlc.

DORYU 2-16 pistol camera might be the most bad ass camera ever. Like a camera straight out of a blaxploitation film.

Started looking around It’s Nice That’s website and found a series of artist talks.
