Friday 05-25-12 Instagram Roundup

USA-centric art collection of @toykio on display in Berlin, Germany

USA-centric art collection of @toykio on display in Berlin, Germany

It was a weird week, and here’s how it looked in 50 photos in today’s Instagram Roundup. The incredible toy art collection of Selim Varol continues to be installed in its summer museum home in Berlin. Os Gemeos challenges Sever’s mural with some graffiti on a train. FriendsWithYou says goodbye to Miami for the art scene of LA, but meanwhile San Francisco had a huge weekend for art. In an odd coincidence, not one, but two, baseball bats are featured in this IG Roundup. Click through for art, toys, cats, bats and Courtney Love. Have a great weekend!
