It has felt like a rather slow week for art news. Here are some of the stories you might have missed this week via our twitter page.Â On this weeks roundup you will find Japan’s bad ass million dollar, robot flying Spiderman, the history of the pubic wig, and one young man’s thoughts on the Walker art Center. Hope everyone has a great weekend. Maybe we’ll see you at the Hyde Park Art Center on Saturday.
