Introducing The (Art) Net, your weekly roundup of all things art and all things social. We combed Instagram, Twitter, Foursquare, and everywhere in between to bring you the trendiest content around. So enjoy, and be sure to come back every Thursday!

This week, the snow didn’t stop anyone in the art world from enjoying Valentine’s Day and beyond. The ArtFCity crew encountered a giant butt (yes, you read that right), while Hrag Vartanian met the legendary Elaine Stritch, and both Yoko Ono and the Futurist Manifesto celebrated a birthday.

More social media adventures and misadventures below:
